Course: Methods of Physical Chemistry

Department/Abbreviation: KEF/PGSPE

Year: 2020

Guarantee: 'doc. RNDr. Libor Machala, Ph.D.'

Annotation: The aim is to familiarize students with physical chemistry methods for study of solid phases, including nanomaterials and nanostructures. Students should understand the principles of these methods.

Course review:
Thermally induced solid-state reactions towards iron and iron oxide based nanomaterials. Influence of physical conditions on the mechanism and kinetics of solid-state reactions. In-situ experiments and their significance for monitoring of solid-state reactions. Methods for characterization of nanomaterials: Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, thermal analysis, magnetization and magnetic susceptibility measurements, BET specific surface are measurements, X-ray fluorescence, microscopic methods (transmission and scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy). Interpretation of measured data
