Last update: Krýsa Josef prof. Dr. Ing. (14.11.2012)
The module belongs among the basic subjects of the inorganic technology specialization. In the frame of this module students obtain the knowledge from the field of phase equilibria of condensed systems, chemical equilibria and electrochemistry. Emphasis is given to theoretical principles as well as to their connection with real processes in chemical industry.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Paidar Martin doc. Ing. Ph.D. (15.08.2013)

Students will be able to:

  • create phase diagrams of condensed systems for 2, 3 and 4 components
  • calculate the equilibrium composition for chemical reactions at given pressure and temperature
  • calculate equilibrium potencial of electrochemical system
  • determine electrochemical reaction rate of common electrochemical systems which are controlled by charge transport or mass transport
