Department of Inorganic Chemistry guarantees the studies of Bioinorganic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Teaching of Chemistry in bachelor’s, master’s and PhD study programmes. The research at the department focuses on development of new types of biologically active compounds based on transition metal complexes with medicinal application potential (e.g. compounds with anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic activity), on preparation and studies of complexes with industrial application potential in the area of sensors, memory and storage units with high density of information, and also on development of hybrid molecular-crystalline nanostructures applicable in the area of targeted delivery of small molecules, e.g. drugs.


 Our teaching activities, as a guarantee of Teaching of Chemistry studies at the Faculty of Science of Palacký University in Olomouc, are also focused on science popularization for pupils and secondary school students, co-organisation of chemical Olympics and also on extracurricular chemical activities for primary and secondary school students.
