Deep in the experimental work

We are currently investigating extraction of the acidic catalyst from the organic phase coming from the reactor producing acrylic ester in the Synthomer a.s.

Inspekce kolony C202

Měli jsme možnost účastnit se inspekce kolony C202 pro dělení směsi VCM/EDC a HCl při výrobě PVC. Kromě Tomáše Mouchy je možno vidět Sulzerovy VGM dvouchodá patra.


Grant from Czech Grant Agency

We have won a grant from Czech Grant Agency “Gas-liquid interface study using thermography”. The project aims to reveal a true value of the effective interfacial area under distillation conditions. 


We have recently added new equipment

Milling machine Warco WM-18 and 3D printer Průša Mk3i have been introduced into our inventory.  

We are preparing for the next distillation campaign

The #30 (summer 2019) experimental campaign will collect composition profiles along the packed bed of our i.d. 300 mm (R300) column distilling cyclohexane/n-heptane mixture under the pressures of 33 kPa, 101 kPa and 180 kPa. The packed bed consists of 12 elements of Mellapak 452.Y packing, we have recently increased number of the sampling points from six to ten.

We are proudly awaiting the results, which will be worldwide unique! 

Many thanks to Prof. Dali Šnita for the manufacture of the sampling points parts during his vacation!

Reconstruction of the room T02b (two new places for PhD students!) started with the relocation of the vast amount of the literature

The reconstruction is performed under the supervision of Lukáš

Diploma thesis defence rehearsal

Jenda, Willy, Daniela a Veronika si zkoušeli obhajoby svých diplomových prací.


Teaching 1

Apart our research, we are also involved in teaching of future brilliant students. Here is a little insight into these activities.


Hattrick at 24h scooter race

The professors and students from our faculty attended again the 24h scooter competition. Thanks to Martin, who got the team together and motivated all of us, we were able to travel 301 rounds (481.6 km), ascend more than 6 km and won third time a row despite the cold and rainy weather. 

Thanks belong to the former student Michal and his friend Štika, newcomer  Jakub and especially to Tomáš for a great job and complete devotion to the victory.


Master theses finalized

Last week, our students in their time race successfully finished the master theses and now prepare for the final exams in the first week of June.

Congratulations and good luck to Daniela, Eliška, Veronika, Filip, Jan and Willi.
