Thermodynamics of Task Specific Materials on Facebook


Our research group is one of the two thermodynamic groups of the Institute of Chemical Processes Fundamentals directly linked to the formerly standalone E. Hála Laboratory of Thermodynamics.

Prof. Eduard Hála (9. 12. 1919 – 28. 8. 1989)

Prof. Hála was born in Roudnice nad Labem. After his graduation in chemistry at Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (ICT) he became lecturer at the Department of Physical Chemistry. With Arnost Reiser he is co-author of a seminal physical chemistry textbook the first volume of which was published 1960. He was forced to leave the ICT in 1958, first joining the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, later founding the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics at the Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals.
