Synopsis:

The aim of the subject is deepening of knowledge of a PhD student in the field of the environmental chemistry, the basis of which is lectured in Bachelor degree of Civil Engineering study program and later in Master degree, Environmental Engineering and Water Management orientation.

Topics of theoretical lessons: chemistry of the five parts of the environment: hydrosphere (focussed particularly on specific pollution – micropollution), atmosphere (inorganic and organic gaseous pollutants, global change of the content of the atmosphere, monitoring of atmospheric pollution, chemistry of the internal environment of buildings), pedosphere and geochemistry (chemical substances/pollutants in soil environment, water – soil interaction, colloids in soil), anthroposphere (industrial ecology and green chemistry, sustainable energy and materials), biosphere (environmental biochemistry and toxicology).

Practical laboratory seminars will be focussed on specific micropollutants (heavy metals, pesticides, high-molecular organic substances) and their analyses mainly in waters, bed sediments and soils with association to environmental characteristics (basic chemical quality of waters, composition and grainsize of sediments and soils, etc.)
