Laboratory of heterogeneous photocatalysis

Laboratory is equipped for the research of waste gases cleaning processes by photocatalytic way and for analysis of gas mixtures.

Research activities

  • Study of the efficiency of photocatalysts for photocatalytic decomposition of N2O, photocatalytic decomposition of methanol (in liquid phase) and photocatalytic reduction of CO2 (both liquid and gas phase).
  • Research of the kinetics of the photocatalytic reactions.
  • Advanced oxidation processes for waste gas cleaning.

Basic equipment

  • Experimental batch reactors (5 geometrically different) for reactions in the gas and liquid phase, using UV irradiation with wavelength 254 nm, 365 nm or 400 nm.
  • Flow photoreactor for testing of decomposition reactions in gas phase.
  • Photoelectric spectrometer.
  • Photocurrent, Kelvin probe.
  • Pilot plant for advanced oxidation processes.
  • Gas chromatograph (TCD/BID).

Offered services

  • Testing of powder photocatalysts for reactions in the gas and liquid phase.
  • Testing of thin film photocatalysts for reactions in the gas and liquid phase.
  • Testing of thin layer photocatalysts for reactions in the gas phase according to ČSN ISO 22197.
  • Characterization of materials by temperature programmed reduction  and desorption
