The research project is oriented mainly on: - research about reaction at extreme conditions with the use of SCF as reaction media; determination of reaction mechanisms and kinetics of biochemical reactions, - synthesis of aerogels and a study of their properties, - determination of adequate catalysts and improvement of their propertiesm, as well as imobilisation of enzymes on aerogel supports, - production of catalysts on aerogel basis as an alternative to clasical methods, - research of separation techniques using high pressure technologies. For designing reactions and separation processes phase equilibria data and transport properties are required. Therefore, our research will also include: - determination of phase equilibria of substances, which are present in the reaction mixture either as reactants or products. the data obtained will be modeled using cubic equations of state and a study of transport coefficients will be performed.
