The Laboratory of Inorganic & Analytical Chemistry was founded in 1918 and is one of the first Laboratories in the School of Chemical Engineering. It has the prime responsibility of educating the students of the School of Chemical Engineering in the courses of Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Instrumental Methods of Chemical Analysis while at the same time participating in the training of the students of the School of Mining & Metallurgical Engineering in the same courses and the students of the School of Civil Engineering in the course of Chemistry. Finally, it has a decisive part in the education of the students in the School of Chemical Engineering that follow the “Industries of Inorganic Chemicals” Direction.

The more specific scientific areas of interest and occupation for the Personnel of the Laboratory consist of: Inorganic Chemistry, Aqueous Solution Chemistry, Instrumental Methods of Analysis, Inorganic Industries, High-Temperature Processes, Inorganic Materials Technology, Chemistry & Technology of Metals, Environmental Chemistry and Technology, Chemistry & Technology of Aluminosilicate Compounds, Utilization of Industrial By-Products, Chemometrics, Trace-element Analysis, Usage of Inorganic Materials for the processing of industrial waste.

The total of the Laboratory Personel’s publication, in international scientific journals for the last 30-years surpasses 350, while the Laboratory’s Members hold significant presence in international conferences and meetings. Currently, around 25 Doctoral Thesis are being conducted in the Laboratory.

Amongst other, the Laboratory possesses: Mass Spectrometer (DI-GC-MS), X-Ray Analyzer (XRD & XRF), N2 Porosimeter, High Performance Liquid Chromatographer, Gas Chromatographer, Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Thermo-balance, Inductively-coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy, UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, IR & FTIR Spectrometer, Flamephotometer, Emission Spectrometer, Pilot Installations, Arrangement for dissolution/leaching, Selective leaching setup, Crushers, Grinding Mills, Laser Granulometer, High-Temperature Kilns, Selective Ion-Exchange setup, Pyrolysis setup.”
