The carbonaceous materials were begun to study at the Dept. of General & Inorganic Chemistry since 1992. Later this research was developed as an individual subject.List of research projects, bachelor, master and doctoral thesis performed in the Laboratory of Carbonaceous Materials.
Currently, the research work at the Laboratory of Carbonaceous Materials is focused in the field of synthesis, examination and application of porous and electroconductive carbon forms:
Synthesis of carbon nanotubes using Fe, Co and Ni catalysts prepared from variuos precursors.
Synthesis of nano-structured carbon coatings.
Combinatorial synthesis of libraries of carbon nano-structures.
Examination of morphology of synthesized carbon nano-structures. SEM image galery
Surface analysis of carbonaceous materials (Boehm titration, FTIR spectrometry, contact angle measurement, potentiometric titration)
Purification and fractionation of synthesized carbon phases.
in enzyme biosensors as electroconductive mediators
in polyfunctional films suitable for separation as well as for heat and charge transfer.
