Research Laboratory of Catalytic Processes

The laboratory is a part of Catalyst Department.

Research range of the laboratory: studies on kinetics of many processes using heterogenous catalysts; analysis of catalytic reaction products; preparation of full characteristics of catalyst physicochemical properties, including:

Research work

  • structure of crystalline materials,
  • texture of catalyst specific and active surface,
  • processes of reduction, oxidation and desorption from catalyst surface,
  • sorption processes on solids’ surface up to 50 bar,
  • kinetics of catalytic reactions: methane steam reforming, CO shift conversion, carbon oxide methanation, ammonia synthesis, methanol synthesis, benzene hydrogenation, nitrous oxide decomposition, hydrogenation processes in liquid phase.

Analysis of

  • composition of commercial gases,
  • very low contents of sulfur compounds in gases,
  • fatty acids,
  • other compounds connected with natural gas and synthesis gas processing.


High Pressure Technique Laboratory

The laboratory is a part of Supercritical Extraction Department.

Research range of the laboratory: studies on supercritical extraction processes and their products from various plant /natural raw materials prepared with CO2 at high pressures, including:

Research work

  • solubility and phase equilibria (1000 bar, 200°C),
  • catalytic reactions (450 bar),
  • oxidation processes in supercritical water (315 bar),
  • extraction in supercritical conditions (2 extractors of capacity 40 l each, 1000 bar).

Chemical analysis

  • U-HPLC,
  • CPC,
  • GC+ MS.


  • in micro- and nano- range (500 bar, 200°C).

High Pressure Laboratory was founded as a result of a project:
Furnishing High Pressure Laboratory with Modern Analytical Equipment.
