Ph.D.Inorganic Chemistry

University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague - Faculty of Chemical Technology
The field of study of Inorganic chemistry is focused on the synthesis of advanced inorganic compounds and materials and studying the relationship between their chemical composition, structure and physico-chemical properties using a variety of instrumental characterization methods and theoretical tools. Based on this knowledge it is possible to design synthesis routes targeted on special inorganic materials and coordination compounds with predefined physical, electrochemical, catalytic and biochemical properties. With a focus on structural chemistry, material research and biocoordination chemistry this field of study has an interdisciplinary character ranging from physics and physical chemistry to biochemistry. The acquired knowledge and skills can vary according to the particular thesis topic from preparative and analytical chemistry to quantum chemistry and other theoretical approaches used for the description of molecular or crystalline structure.

Graduate profile

The graduate will acquire theoretical knowledge and skills in advanced inorganic chemistry, in particular in the description of chemical bonding, thermodynamic stability and electrochemical properties of inorganic substances, which form a basis for many important technical applications such as nanoelectronics or catalysis but also for the role of chemical elements in biochemical systems. Apart form the theoreical knowledge the students are educated to adopt practical skills in structure analysis ans physico-chemical characterization of inorganic materials and coordination compounds. The graduates find the positions in fundamental and applied research focused on advanced inorganic materials, the materials for electronics and photonics in particular. These positions range from universities, research institutes and applied research laboratories in industrial companies, but also higher management positions in goverment, industry, research and development.
