Course content
Thermally induced solid-state reactions towards iron and iron oxide based nanomaterials. Influence of physical conditions on the mechanism and kinetics of solid-state reactions. In-situ experiments and their significance for monitoring of solid-state reactions. Methods for characterization of nanomaterials: Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, thermal analysis, magnetization and magnetic susceptibility measurements, BET specific surface are measurements, X-ray fluorescence, microscopic methods (transmission and scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy). Interpretation of measured data

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic Lecture(Interpretation, Training), Dialogic Lecture (Discussion, Dialog, Brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
The aim is to familiarize students with physical chemistry methods for study of solid phases, including nanomaterials and nanostructures. Students should understand the principles of these methods.
Student will understand the principles of methods for characterization of solid phases including nanomaterials.
