Scottish Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice prof. Duncan Gregory chemistry of solids and nanoworld

Press news

In the week between 28 March and 1 April lecturer at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, Visiting Professor Duncan Gregory from Glasgow University in Scotland.

** A weekly lecture series called ** „Solid State Chemistry – Nanoscale Solids Theory“ is one of a set of lectures organized by international experts under the project to support the training and development of a scientific research team at the Center of Materials Research, co-funded by the European Social Fund and national budget Czech Republic. This is a three-year project, which was launched last year under the Operational Programme Education for Competitiveness. The implementation of the planned training activities and the development of young researchers won the varsity team CZK 16.6 million.

The lecture series for its organizers prof. Ing. Thomas Wagner, PhD., Dean of the Faculty of Chemical Technology and an expert guarantor of the project, said:

  • "Professor Duncan Gregory are among the most respected scientists and educators in the field of chemistry and solid research, and crystalline layered chalcogenides, oxides, nitrides and other conducting and semiconducting materials. Solid state chemistry deals with more than 20 years. Among his most acclaimed works include the study of ion-conductive nitrides and sulfides and electrical properties of these and other inorganic materials. Based on detailed and extensive experimental results of Professor Gregory developed a theory explaining change in electrical properties and ionic conductivity of inorganic materials used as electrode and electrolyte materials for solid state batteries. His other important and timely contribution to the chemistry of solids are the procedures for the synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles and their application in inorganic materials. The results of his research are published in prestigious scientific journals .*

This is the second stay Prof. Duncan Gregory, University of Pardubice. The new trends in electronics and new application possibilities of these materials – the „New lithium nitride suitable for storing hydrogen for fuel cells“ lectured at the University of Pardubice in 2006 at the international conference SSC 2006th

  • Lecture by prof. Gregory's students are always a great benefit in understanding new materials. Also contributing significantly to the development of creative activities and projects at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, particularly the Department of Physical Chemistry, Department of Inorganic Technology, Department of General and Inorganic Chemistry, Research Center of the Joint Laboratory of Solid State Chemistry of Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry Academy of Sciences and University of Pardubice.

Professor Duncan Gregory with us, not only in pedagogy but also preparing the next International Conference Solid State Chemistry (SSC 2012), which we hold in Pardubice in June next year, "* said the lecture series Scottish professor prof. Wagner of the home of the Faculty of Chemical Technology.

Lectures take place on 28 March to 1 April at the Faculty of Chemical Technology, in building a new site FChT HB, S21 classroom.
