Departmnet of physical chemistry University of Pardubice
The Department staff members deal with four programs of scientific research:
Surface chemistry and catalysis group
The behavior of non-crystalline materials
  • This research deals with viscosity behaviour, structural relaxation of non-crystalline materials, and kinetics of crystallisation in strongly super-cooled glass-forming liquids.
  • Optical and electron microscopy
Applied chemical kinetics and pharmacokinetiks
  • dissolution studies of the solid dosage forms
  • measurement of the physicochemical properties of pharmaceutics
Preparation of biodiesel
  • transesterification of oils by low molecular alcohols (methanol or ethanol)
  • the most important variables of the reaction are: molar ratio alcohol/oil, type and amount of catalyst, reaction temperature and time, intensity of stirring and composition of the input vegetable oil.
