At the NANOCON´20 conference Dr. Jiří Henych will present an invited lecture “Nanostructured titania- and ceria-based materials for destruction of toxic chemicals” at the session E.
Personal Background and Education:
Research Interests and main results:
Jiří Henych is focused on the research of nanostructured oxides and their use in environmental applications, especially for the degradation of toxic substances such as organophosphorus chemical warfare agents and pesticides.
His research work is dedicated also to ultrasonic preparation of low-dimensional systems, such as graphene, its inorganic analogues and nanodiamonds. He studied the properties of new nanocomposite materials based on graphene and nanodiamonds, for example, during a six-month research internship at Uppsala University.
He has authored and co-authored of >50 works that have been cited for almost 700 times.
His Hirsch index: 13.
For his outstanding scientific achievements in the field of photocatalysts and reactive adsorbents based on nanostructured metal oxides for the decomposition of organic pollutants and chemical warfare agents Jiří Henych won the prestigious Otto Wichterle Prize in 2020.
