    The goalAcquiring knowledge about the structure, properties, preparation nad application of porous materials.
    The outcomeThe student has acquired knowlwdge about materials for special applications and about the methods for their investigation. On the basis of the acquired knowledge the student is able to decide independently which kind of the porous material is to be used in some technological process and to suggest the manner in which the material can be modified in order to suit a particular application.
    Contents of lectures1. Introduction – definition of porous materials and their classification ; 2. Silicates and the nature of the chemical bond between silicon and oxygen. The rules governing the cross-linking of the building units. ; 3. Zeolites – formation, structure and properties ; 4. Porous aluminophosphates. Structure, properties and preparation ; 5. Methods of characterization of porous materials ; 6. Application of porous materials in adsorption, ion-exchange and catalysis ;
    Contents of exercisesLaboratory experiments: ; 1. Hydrothermal synthesis of porous aluminophosphates ; 2. Synthesis of zeolites and determination of the ion-exchange capacity ; 3. X-ray powder diffraction analysis of a zeolite (a natural or synthetic zeolite) ;
