Course content

The specialization consists of modules giving a total sum 7,5 credits. Modules are chosen from the following list: Environmental catalysis - (3.75 credits). Heterogeneous catalysis (advanced course).- (3.75 credits). Industrial colloid chemistry - (3.75 credits). Reactor modelling - (3.75 credits). Chemical engineering, special topics - (3.75 credits). Modules from other specialisations can be chosen given the approval of the coordinator.

Learning outcome

At the end of the course the students should: - Understand and apply core principles and concepts in heterogeneous catalysis. - Know the most important catalytic materials, and describe their functions. - Describe important applications of heterogeneous catalysts in energy conversion, emissions clean-up, and clean production. - Evaluate and select catalysts for a range of processes. - Plan and choose methods for characterization of key properties and the measurement of catalytic activity, selectivity and life-time of heterogeneous catalysts. - Evaluate the causes of deactivation and propose methods for the regeneration of heterogeneous catalysts. - The students should be able to find relevant scientific literature, and be able to understand and reproduce the work that has been done. - The students should be able to report scientific work concisely both orally and in written form.

Learning methods and activities

The modules are given as lectures, seminars, excercises, self-study. The students are expected to use 200 hours on the tasks and studies in this course.
