From the very beginning, the Department of Physical Chemistry has been an essential part of the University of Chemical Technology, the predecessor of the current Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice. The department provided and still provides teaching of physical chemistry in the bachelor's, master's and doctoral study program.
The long-term head of the department, prof. RNDr. Antonín Tockstein, DrSc., played a significant role in the establishment and later development in the field of pedagogy. In later years, Assoc. Prof. Ing. Karel Komers, CSc., Prof. Ing. Josef Tichý, DrSc., Assoc. Prof. Ing. František Skopal, CSc., Prof. Ing. Roman Bulánek, Ph.D. and prof. Ing. Jiří Málek, DrSc (current rector).
Research activities at the Department of Physical Chemistry are carried out in four groups, namely (a) Surface chemistry and catalysis, (b) Kinetic phenomena in glass-forming systems, (c) Conversion of oil into valuable products and (d) Applied chemical kinetics and pharmacokinetics.
The department is actively involved in international cooperation with partner workplaces abroad, both in the field of research and student and academic exchanges. It is also active in the number of organized lectures, presentations at conferences and external meetings.
