Students obtain basic knowledge about homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts, their preparation and characterization, and the use of catalysts in catalytic processes in chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry and environment.
Course contents:
Historical development of catalysis, dividing of catalysis to homogeneous and heterogeneous, enzymatic, phase-transfer catalysis. Preparation and characterization of catalysts, influence of heat and mass transport on the rate of catalytic process. Evaluation of activity and selectivity of catalysts. Catalysts acido-basic, hydrogenation-dehydrogenation, oxidation-reduction, zeolite. Mechanisms of catalyzed reactions. Examples of catalysts applications – cracking, alkylation, hydrogenation, hydration and dehydration processes. Modern sorption and spectral methods of characterization of catalysts.
