Scientific research and articles
The following scientific research works are carried out at the Chemical Engineering Department of Baku Engineering University.
Renewable energy sources
In the Chemical Engineering Department of Baku Engineering University, a large-scale research has been started to obtain hydrogen from sea water. More than 3 students, 3 teachers and 1 engineer research team are intensively involved in this work. An improved pilot device has been installed and successfully deployed. Six electrodes have been installed in the reactor of this device and anode is completely isolated in these electrodes. The conductivity between the cathode and the anode is provided by the membrane. Natural mineral resources of Azerbaijan are used as membranes. At present, our research continues to focus on how the amount of chloride in the seawater has changed over time. Corrosion-resistant device allows use of seawater, the amount of hydrogen in the mixture is high. Hydrogen, an environmentally friendly fuel, is used as a renewable energy source in a number of countries, and the demand for hydrogen in the modern world is increasing day by day.
A group of students and teachers is working on the synthesis of nitrogenous heterocyclic organic compounds. The main focus of the study is to synthesize compounds containing imidazole structure. Such compounds are of great importance in the preparation of ionic fluids that can be used to handle cellulose, as well as in the various ingredients used. Effective methods of solving the cellulose are studied in the world's most advanced research laboratories. The goal is to synthesize substances that can be used as a car fuel solution to solve cellulose. Ionic fluids are the most widely used substances in this area.
Computer calculations chemistry
Computer clusters are loaded with many software (software) and can be run in parallel to the processors in a relatively short period of time, which can take long hours, years, on normal PCs. Internet access is given in the cluster's usernames, and researchers from around the world can send commands to their domains and get the results of their operations. Given the lack of such a system in our country and in neighboring countries, it is possible to predict that clusters are in great demand. These clusters have the ability to perform many operations. For example, by measuring the minimum energy of components in the chemical reactions (Gaussian software used), it gives you an idea of the possibility of the course. This increases the effectiveness of the research from economic point of view, eliminating the need for practical verification of processes. Through such programs it is possible to explore the structure - function relationships of complex biomolecules in physics, biophysics, pharmacology and other fields.
Research work in this direction is carried out within the framework of cooperation with the Emerson Scientific Calculations Center of the Emory University of the United States..
Bachelors and masters are trained at the Chemical Engineering Department of Baku Engineering University. At the same time, scientific research works are also carried out with laboratory activities intended for teaching. Students are also involved in practical activities after learning theoretical knowledge from the first lesson in general chemistry, and this trend continues in classes such as analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, fluid mechanics, and finally, using chemical engineering laboratories I and chemical engineering labs II in engineering learns how the devices work on the lab, and perform certain experiments and calculations.
Chemical Engineering Laboratory (I)
Laboratory of Basic Operations
The Laboratory of Basic Applications enables students to learn and practice the basic principles of chemical engineering. The laboratory contains essential industrial equipment. These equipments include distillation column (fractional and direct), heat exchange systems with reverse and parallel flow, ion exchange unit, gas absorption and liquid-liquid extraction column, convection dryer. These mechanisms are designed to introduce students to large-scale production processes. In this lab, students work in groups and reinforce their knowledge in the classroom with laboratory work.
Chemical Engineering Laboratory (II)
Laboratory of Technological Processes
The Technology Process Laboratory is designed for designing, directing, managing and optimizing chemical, physical, and biological processes through computer technology. In this laboratory, the membrane cleaning device operated by the reverse osmosis principle used for cleaning dirty water, along with pressure, temperature, flow rate, level control devices, and water cooling towers to study the widely used control and automation systems in chemical engineering are available. Students will be able to observe how the processes occurring in the industry are carried out on laboratory labs by performing experimental calculations on devices.
Physical Chemistry Lab
There are plenty of up-to-date devices in the laboratory to do research on physical chemistry. Most of the devices that students can work freely are computer-assisted. These devices include ion exchange systems, adsorption columns, corrosion research device in carbon dioxide environment, and so on.
Organic Chemistry Lab
In the Organic Chemistry Lab, students learn both the synthesis methods and translators they pass through the classroom, and also work in the field of scientific research. There are also devices that are used to separate the substance from the laboratories provided with the devices needed to make the most modern synthesis. It is possible to learn the purity, melting and boiling temperatures of the synthesized substances in the laboratory.
Analytical chemistry laboratory
The main subject of analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis is chemical analysis and calculation. In analytical chemistry labs, students are mainly involved in titrating methods, gravimetric analysis, acquaintance with the principles of spectrometers, flame photometry and viscometer. The Karl-Fisher apparatus, which is used to analyze oil and similar products with a small amount of water and accurately measure the amount of water, is also taught in analytical chemistry classes. The syrups used to crush the heterogeneous components contained in the blends are also available in analytical chemistry labs, as well as in all other laboratories, and are actively used in teaching. Given that a large number of distilled water is needed for the teaching of chemistry, the analytical chemistry laboratory is also equipped with a distillation apparatus.
General Chemistry Lab
The laboratory is designed to teach the basic principles and concepts of general chemistry. In addition, the laboratory encompasses the use of data collection and analysis, preparation of practice reports and information books. During the course, students will be taught safety techniques and precise research techniques in the laboratory. Since the properties of the inorganic chemistry as well as the properties of inorganic substances are studied, all experiments in this field are practically carried out, and students carry out their reactions in the laboratory.
The Chemical Engineering Department's advisory board is to provide feedback and support for education and research. Members of the board are selected from the company and industry leaders and are based on the principle of voluntarism. The advice of the Chemistry Department students to make a successful career is taken into account. Establishment of scientific research laboratories and determination of perspective research areas are discussed by the members of the Board and presented to the department in the form of decisions. The Advisory Board meeting should be held at least once in the semester and all members of the council must meet at the Baku Engineering University.
