Catalysis in Czechia
J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry

The Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry promotes the scientific legacy of the Nobel laureate, Professor Jaroslav Heyrovský, in fields related to physical chemistry. Over two hundred scientists, from promising young researchers to world-renowned experts, are engaged in groundbreaking fundamental and applied research, as well as education. Theoretically and experimentally acquired insights into physical and chemical processes are important for energy production and storage, industrial catalytic processes, healthcare and protection of the environment.
