Summary
In the course students will gain knowledge in the field of physico-chemical and biological methods of synthesis and preparation of nanomaterials and nanostructured materials. These are different types of gas and liquid preparations, including the use of biological processes. The student will deepen his / her understanding of the principles of the individual processes. He / she will acquire ability to apply these processes to prepare different types of nanomaterials and nanostructures also in subsequent practical exercises on this subject.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the course is to deepen student knowledge in the field of chemical and physico-chemical and biological methods of synthesis and preparation of nanoparticles, nanomaterials and nanostructured materials. Students will understand the principles of individual processes and gain the ability to apply them for different types of nanomaterials, nanoparticles and nanostructures.
