Professor Jiri Čejka
Micromeritics’ Grant Selection Committee has selected the recipient of its grant award for the second quarter of 2012. An ASAP 2020 HD Micropore Analyzer has been awarded to the Department of Synthesis and Catalysis, J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry in Prague, Czech Republic.
According to Professor Jiří Čejka, Principal Investigator, “The Department represents the National Centre in adsorption providing experimental and theoretical support to other research teams in the Czech Republic and abroad. In line with fundamental research in the field of interactions on the surface of solids the Department organizes summer schools and international symposia and holds lectures of leading researchers aimed at synthesis of novel materials, adsorption, and catalysis. The ASAP 2020 HD Micropore will allow us to obtain adsorption data with a high resolution scale. These data are essential for a theoretical analysis in a number of ongoing research projects.” Professor Čejka is currently Head of the Department of Synthesis and Catalysis, President of the Czech Zeolite Association and Czech National Committee for Chemistry. He has published more than 200 research papers with more than 3300 citations to his credit. His H-index is currently 33.
According to Preston Hendrix, Micromeritics’ president, “This program is designed to promote and advance the acquisition and use of particle characterization instrumentation in non-profit universities and institutions where other means of funding are not generally available. We are very proud and excited to present this award in an ongoing grant program to support important research.” Mr. Hendrix has appointed a special Grant Selection Committee to ensure the success and effectiveness of this program.
Micromeritics’ Instrument Grant Program is intended to provide particle characterization instruments to non-profit universities and research organizations for the purpose of fostering and supporting meritorious research projects. A maximum of one instrument/integrated system will be awarded per calendar quarter.
Applications may be submitted at any time in accordance with the application instructions and will remain active for a period of one year from the date of submission. Visit Micromeritics Grant Program for a detailed grant description, application requirements, and application.
