Pavel Matějka appointed UCT Prague Rector
On Wednesday, December 11, 2019, at Prague Castle, the President of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, appointed Professor Pavel Matějka Rector of the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague.
Professor Matějka will become leader of the university on January 1, 2020, with a four-year term of office.
Joining Professor Matějka at the event were Radek Cibulka, Chair of the UCT Prague Academic Senate, and outgoing Rector, Karel Melzoch.
Prof. Dr. RNDr. Pavel MATĚJKA studied physical chemistry at the Faculty of Science, Charles University, joining UCT Prague in 1993. In 2003, he became associate professor and since 2008 he has been a full UCT Prague professor. From 2010 to 2013, he was Vice-Dean for External Relations at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering. Since 2013, he has been Head of the Department of Physical Chemistry. In 2016, he became UCT Prague‘s Vice-Rector for External Relations and Communication. He is interested in the development of vibrational spectroscopy techniques using nanoparticles and nanostructures, resulting in approximately 150 publications in high-quality journals, more than 2,100 citations (without self-citations), and h-index 23.
The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) is a natural hub for top-class education and research in the field of chemistry in the Czech Republic. It is one of the largest Czech educational and research institutions focused on technical chemistry, chemical and biochemical technologies, material and chemical engineering, food sciences and the environment. There are over 4,000 students studying at the university, with an extraordinary proportion of doctoral students (on average, 700). Some of the educational programmes are unique and crucial for the future of the entire Czech Republic. UCT Prague cooperates with more than 100 academic institutions mainly in Europe, but also in the USA, Canada, Japan, Vietnam, and beyond.

Elections of the Dean
Dear colleagues, academia members of FCE,
we would like to announce the two candidates for the dean elections of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering, UCT Prague:
- Dr. RNDr. Pavel Matějka
- Ing. Michal Přibyl, Ph.D.
The Academic senate of FCE has already asked the candidates a set of questions. The answers of both professors together with their short resumes are available HERE
On Friday the 14th of December 2018 at 1 PM in the AII lecture hall there will be a public presentation of both candidates in Czech language. The candidates will present their visions and will answer further questions of the academia members.
Questions can be asked either directly during the presentation or in advance through a form here https://goo.gl/forms/51eFrArm6i8g1Ji82
The election will take place on the 17th of December and the new dean’s mandate will start on the 1st of February 2019.

JACS Celebrating 140 Years
Editor's Choice: Paul Cremer
Associate Editor Paul Cremer highlights the article of Jan Heyda et al. “Guanidinium can both Cause and Prevent the Hydrophobic Collapse of Biomacromolecules“, an open access article published under an ACS AuthorChoice License:
“Guanidinium salts are widely used as protein denaturants. In this work, we showed that their influence on biomacromolecules depended strongly upon the identity of the specific anion with which the guanidinium cation was paired. This led to very rich chemistry.
For example, low concentrations of GndSCN helped to stabilize the collapsed state of the macromolecule despite the fact that higher concentrations of the same salt served as a powerful denaturant. Moreover, Gnd2SO4 worked as a stabilizer of protein structure, but for very different mechanistic reasons than low concentrations of GndSCN.
This work highlights the strong interplay of thermodynamics, spectroscopy, and theory that is currently employed to unravel challenging mechanistic problems in modern biophysical chemistry.”

Open Research Biopharmaceutical Internships Support
The development department of ZENTIVA is proud to announce that Tereza Boleslavská, as the first Zentiva student, has just started two-month training at the Trinity College in Dublin within the frame of ORBIS (Open Research Biopharmaceutical Internships Support) program sponsored by 2.3 mio EUR grant from European Commission (HORIZON 2020). The aim of ORBIS is to create a bridge between academic and industrial scientists in order to develop new efficient methodologies in pharmaceutical RD. Zentiva will keep sending its best students and employees to study in the best European academic institutions. At the same time our academic partners will spend period of research work in Zentiva laboratories having the opportunity not only interact with our scientific staff but to gain experience from the pharmaceutical business and manufacturing as well.
Theoretical chemistry seminars
Schedule of Theoretical chemistry seminars (UCT & IOCB) for Spring 2018 is available. We have prepared a mixture of talks given by postdocs, local or domestic senior scientists and by distinguished speakers from abroad. Not only for UCT students, we have included three engineering oriented lectures.

Czech Scientists Preparing Device to Detect Explosives and Chemical Warfare Agents for NATO
Laboratory of Inorganic Materials, a joint workplace of the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and the IRSM ASCR, v.v.i., was awarded a two-year contract to work with US national Laboratories on the development of the mathematical model of glass melting during the vitrification of nuclear waste.
The team at UCT Prague is headed by Richard Pokorny, a PhD student at the Department of Chemical Engineering, who already cooperated with US laboratories for several years. “Together with associated professor Jaroslav Klouzek, we will build on my previous work, and will focus on the development of the model for batch to glass conversion in nuclear waste melter. Using this model, we will be able to predict the melting rate, and help to optimize the whole conversion process”, Mr. Pokorny says.
About the Vitrification project:
In southeastern Washington state, Bechtel National, Inc. is designing, constructing, and commissioning the world’s largest radioactive waste treatment plant for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). When complete, the Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant, also known as the Vit Plant, will process and stabilize million gallons of radioactive and chemical waste currently stored at the Hanford Site.
