- This course is obligatory for students of Biomass Refining major and elective to Chemical Engineering majors and others.
- The course is a natural continuation of the course CHEM-E1130 Catalysis. Although formal requirements have not been set in OODI, the assumption is that the students before the course have basic knowledge of concepts and terminology related to catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis in particular.
- The course is held this year for the third time and is still developing. In 2018, the course is will be organized largely in the same way as in 2017: there will be visiting lecturers and quizzes after the lectures + a group literature work + an individual article summary. There is no exam.
Course responsible is Prof Riikka Puurunen. In practical matters, please turn to university lecturer Dr. Reetta Karinen, firstname.lastname@example.org. Welcome to the course!
