AbstractIntroduction to the main specific areas in chemical and biochemical engineering. The students sharpen their laboratory skills and learn to plan and perform problem-oriented experiments and to analyse, interpret and present the results.
ObjectiveIntroduction to the main specific areas in chemical and biochemical engineering. the students sharpen their laborarory skills and learn combined techniques to plan and perform problem-oriented experiments and to analyse, interpret and present the results.
ContentTeams of two students will conduct four or five experiments from the following areas: reactor stability, characterization of multiphase reactors, heterogeneous gas phase catalysis, polymer reaction engineering, process control and automation, safety and ecological analysis.
529-0699-00LSafety and Environmental Technology of Chemical Processes and Products0 credits2SK. Hungerbühler, C. Bogdal, F. C. I. Meemken, M. Scheringer, N. von Götz, Z. Wang
AbstractThis course comprises a series of seminars on current topics regarding environmental impact and safety of chemical products and processes. Invited national and international speakers from public and industrial research institutions present their latest developments and applications, and show future trends.
ObjectiveGiving the students the opportunity to experience recent research progress at first hand; encouraging participation in discussions with speaker and audience.
529-0745-00LGeneral and Environmental Toxicology7 credits3VM. Arand, K. Hungerbühler, H. Nägeli, B. B. Stieger, I. Werner
AbstractToxicokinetic and toxicodynamic aspects of xenobiotic interactions with cellular structures and mechanisms. Toxic responses at the level of organs (immune-, neuro-, reproductive and genotoxicity) and organisms. Introduction into developmental toxicology and ecotoxicology.
ObjectiveUnderstanding of the impact of chemicals on biological systems; evaluation of the effects from different biomedical perspectives.
ContentExplanation of important interactions between xeniobiotic chemicals and cellular structures such as membranes, enzymes, and nucleic acids. Relevance of intake, distribution, excretion, and biochemical transformation processes. Relevance of mixtures. Explanation of important modes of toxic action such as immuno toxicity, neurotoxicity, reproduction toxicity, genotoxicity based on examples of certain xenobiotics and their effects on important organs.
