Entry knowledge

Basic knowledge of chemical termodynamics, chemical kinetics, elektrochemistry and science on structure of matter. Knowledge of english language, enabling the study of chemical literature.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The evaluation is performed by the gurantee, where the quality of the presentation with respect to the scientific and formal level, as well as the quality of student´s answers within discussion is taken into account.


The goal of the subject: Based on the study of recommended literature and consecutive presentation in the form of lecture, the Ph.D.student should prove that he understands the basic principles of physico-chemical phenomena connected with the elaboration of diploma thesis.
By the study of chosen topics from Physical chemistry the students obtain the required knowledge, which they will apply by the elaboration of diploma thesis.
