Science and Research
In addition to primary research, which is the focal point of scientific activities, the Institute of Chemical Processes simultaneously focuses on applied research. It successfully participates in state-supported application projects (TACR, MPO) and at the same time cooperates with commercial entities within the framework of bilateral projects, service orders, or contract research. Due to its broad scientific focus, ICPF can offer a wide range of expertise while taking advantage of the close, long-lasting cooperation of professionals from diverse fields. As a result, the institute forms a multidisciplinary team with the synergy necessary to solve complex problems of the modern world.

We develop special materials for organic electronics and biomedical applications.
We focus on research in the field of new biotechnologies.
Lactose-Functionalized Carbosilane Glycodendrimers with Binding to Galectins
Galectins (Gal), proteins that bind carbohydrate ligands of glycans, represent a fundamental regulatory system that modulates many biological processes. Advances in Gal-targeted therapy must be based on a detailed understanding of ligand and protein recognition mechanisms. For glycodendrimer-based multivalent ligands (glyco-DDMs), the so-called mul…
Membrane technology for challenging separations: Removal of CO2, SO2 and NOx from flue and waste gases
Based on the numerous studies that have been published so far, it can be stated that different membranes in different forms, with a wide range of chemical, physical, and transport properties and different operating principles, offer excellent possibilities for the efficient separation of different gas mixtures. While the performance of non-porous m…
Interactions of cationic surfactant-fatty alcohol monolayers with natural human hair surface: Insights from dissipative particle dynamics
Fatty alcohols (CnFAs) combined with cationic surfactants are common ingredients of lamellar-phase personal care liquids. We employ mesoscopic modelling to study how surfactant-CnFA monolayers originating from the corresponding bilayers of the personal care liquids interact with the human hair surface above and below the fluid-gel transition temper…
