The course is focused on understanding of phase boundary processes. Students will be introduced briefly into Liner Irreversible Thermodynamics, continuity equations and corresponding application in various physicochemical processes (electrokinetic phenomena, diffusion in multicomponent systems, membrane equilibria, adsorption and sorption etc.) together with description of appropriate experimental methods for their determination.
