Porous Materials, 7.5 credits

About the education

This course provides an overview of various porous materials chemistry with emphasis on structure and properties, including the latest developments in the field. Basic theory and laboratory experiments with different instruments and methods for the characterization of materials is included. Further described chemical composition and structure of various types of porous materials; their characteristics and various synthetic methods for preparing the materials.

The concept of reticular chemistry for the rational design of materials with specific desired properties is introduced. The project work includes the synthesis of porous materials, and characterization of the obtained substances using various techniques.

The techniques used in the powder X-ray diffraction (micro crystals),

scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS),

transmission electron microscopy (TEM), thermal analysis, gas adsorption, and various spectroscopic analytical methods, especially FT-IR and NMR of the solid phase.
