Environmentální nanotechnologie

Výzkumné zaměření

Environmentální skupina se soustředí zejména na výzkum a vývoj pokročilých nanomateriálů a nových technologií pro aplikace v environmentální chemii včetně udržitelných aplikací v katalýze. Tyto nanomateriály mají uplatnění především ve třech hlavních oblastech: environmentální technologie, udržitelné katalytické aplikace a foto- a elektrochemické aplikace. První oblast zahrnuje vývoj (nano)materiálů s různým oxidačním stavem železa (například kovové železo, feráty – FeIV,V,VI) pro environmentální aplikace včetně čištění vod od toxických látek a dále také zkoumání ekotoxicity výše uvedených nanočástic apod. Druhá oblast se soustřeďuje na katalytické aplikace nanomateriálů na bázi kovů, oxidů kovů a uhlíku pro dosažení efektivní organické transformace. Dosažený pokrok v oblasti katalytických systémů na bázi oxidů železa představuje jedinečné výhody, které plynou z vysoké recyklovatelnosti a magnetických separací. Takové procesy jsou nejen ekologické, ale i ekonomicky zajímavé. Rychlý vzestup v oblasti fotochemie a elektrochemie zejména kvůli aplikacím souvisejícími s energiemi, například solární články nebo elektrokatalýza, byl silným impulsem k tomu, abychom se podíleli na vývoji nových materiálů také pro foto- a elektrochemické aplikace.

Oblasti výzkumu:

  • Chemie nulamocného železa a jeho aplikace
  • Železo ve vyšších oxidačních stavech - feráty (IV, V, VI)
  • Katalýza, zelená chemie
  • Katalýza na bázi uhlíku
  • Katalýza pomocí core-shell nanočástic
  • Ekotoxicita nanočástic
  • Fotoelektrochemie, solární články
