    ConditionCourse attendance: 120 ECTS. Exam: Organic Chemistry II-passed.Облик условљености
    The goalThe aim of this course is to provide a general understanding, as well as acquiring knowledge about theoretical and practical aspects of modern organic industrial syntheses. An individual work allows students to get knowledge in order to apply it in industrial environment.
    The outcomeAfter the students fulfilled all the requirements and passed the exam, they acquired konwledge about processes and environmental aspects of organic industrial syntheses; ability to communicate effectively in both, oral and written form. Based on the previously acquired knowledge, as well as those acquired in this course, the students are capable to solve basic problems in practice.
    Contents of lectures1. Surfactants: properties, application in household detergents, personal care and cosmetics. 2. Ion-exchange resins: properties, selectivity coefficients and separation factors, isotherms and kinetics, regeneration, application in practice. 3. Encapsulation and controlled release: existing and newly developed encapsulation techniques, controlled release. 4. Pesticides: classification, formulations, application, legislation. 5.
