Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry

In 2014 a new Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry was established merging Department of Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and General Chemistry.

Mission of Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry – performance of world-class scientific research, preparation of highly qualified Bachelor, Master and Doctor degree graduates, who are marketable at national and international level and able to apply acquired knowledge in scientific and practical activities.

Departments employ highly qualified lecturers, who perform intense scientific activities and participate in study and scientific projects.

Activities of the Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry:

  • Pedagogical – Department prepares Bachelor graduates in chemical technologies and engineering (inorganic material technologies, mineral fertilizers and electrochemical production specializations) and Master graduates in chemical engineering and chemistry programmes. It actively participates in Doctoral programmes (chemical engineering and chemistry). Study programmes of Bachelor and Master degree are conducted in Lithuanian and English languages.
  • Students, curated by Department, are encouraged to actively participate in the European educational exchange programmes (ERASMUS, ERASMUS+ programmes).
  • Scientific – Department's scientific groups perform research, related to KTU priority fields: "Ne high tech materials" and "Technologies for sustainable development and energy".  Department's lecturers actively participate in scientific research activities, cooperate with other KTU departments, Lithuanian and foreign partners.
  • Department's lecturers closely cooperate with UAB "Arvi fertis", AB "Achema", AB "Lifosa" performing outsourced works and solving the issues of chemistry industry companies, students, curated by Department, complete placement and internships in those Lithuanian companies of chemical industry.

Research

Department of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry consists of divisions of General Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Physical and Inorganic Chemistry. There are 3 scientific groups working in the divisions, formed according to the work fields and topics.

Division of General Chemistry: the main field of work of Division of General Chemistry – electrochemistry, the issues that are solved – electrolytic deposition of manganese and its alloys and research of received coatings, aiming to use them as anode protection steel coatings and as solder for diffusion welding of various kinds of metals and their alloys.

Scientific research at the Division of General Chemistry is performed by Scientific group of technical issues in electrochemistry. The main areas of scientific research of this group: electrolytic deposition of manganese and its alloys and their corrosion resistance, research of CuxS layers on plastics.

Scientific group of organic synthesis and technologies work in cooperation with other departments. The main areas of scientific research of this group: Synthesis of n-substituted amino acids and their derivatives, and cyclization of received compounds, synthesis of alkyl quinoline derivatives and characteristics of received compounds, creation and complex research of eco-friendly, effective technologies for leather processing.

Division of Physical Chemistry performs the research related to KTU priority field "New high tech materials". Two subtopics can be distinguished in the topic, which includes research of special multi-component systems and their application:

Physical chemical characteristics of oxide systems of transition metals and their use. It aims to create new absorbents, catalysts and coatings, determine their physical chemical characteristics and use.

Production, characteristics and use of compounds fertilizers. Researches are performed, expanding the assortment of fertilizers, containing natural unconventional easily accessible raw materials (dolomite, zeolite, ash) or other production waste.

Division of Inorganic Chemistry: the field of scientific work of the division's employees is related to synthesis of new chalcogenide compounds and production of chalcogenide coatings, and research of their characteristics. The main field of work of scientific group is related to the main taught subjects: inorganic chemistry and chemical analysis: forming of the elements of new compounds of V, VI, VIIA group elements – non-metals, their chemical and physical-chemical characteristics, composition and structure, adaptation of these elements and their compounds of low degree oxidation if forming of semiconductors and layers of binary compounds of electrically conductive thin d-metal-non-metal (sulphides, selenides, tellurides), composite materials distinguished by new characteristics, forming of the surface of dielectrics, which are relevant for nano science and technology.
