Course content
Heterogeneous non-catalytic reactions in the system of gas-liquid and fluid-soled Heterogeneous catalysis - basic concepts Kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions Possibilities in the characterization of catalysts Preparation and manufacture of the catalysts Catalytic reactions in the lab - from lab to technical scale Industrial catalysis Mechanism of catalytic reactions Utilization of heterogeneous catalytic reactions

Learning activities and teaching methods
Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book), Projection
Learning outcomes
The objective of the subject is to establish the concept of the heterogeneous catalysis in the system of the gas reactant and the solid catalyst. The attention is focused to the catalytic experiment, the catalyst preparation and the methods of catalysts characterization. The attention is also focused to the principles and examples of the important heterogeneous catalytic reactions. Students will be able to orient and to discuss in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. The students will be also able to stand-alone solution in the field of of the heterogeneous catalytic reactions.
Student should be able to know the basic concepts of heterogeneous catalysis. Student should be able to understand and to solve the problems such as the kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions, characterization of catalysts, the preparation of catalysts and the utilization of heterogeneous catalytic reactions.
Prerequisites
knowledge of chemical kinetics, physical chemistry and mathematics (range of bachelor program)

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

written examination and oral examination
