3 History of ICTP1803 Emperor Francis II. founded Chemistry Department of the Prague Polytechnic, officially called the Royal Czech Polytechnical Institute1806 began courses in the departments of mathematics and chemistryChemistry Department provided instruction in general and practical chemistry with a focus on the major Czech industries, glass, iron and textile.1920 transformation into the School of Chemical Technology, one of the seven faculties of the Czech Technical University1952 independent Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague
4 ICTP – Notable Alumni Professor Vlado Prelog (1906-1998) organic chemistawarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1975 as professor at the ETH Zürich (contribution to the stereochemistry of organic molecules and their reactions)Professor Otto Wichterle ( )macromolecular chemistthe inventor of soft hydro-gel contact lenses or polyamide thread Silon (Nylon)Prof. Josef Pašek (b. 1930)Awarded the Czech Head 2004 for the development of aniline production technology. License was sold to Japanese company Tosoh.

Understanding the intercellular communication may result to increased production rate or higher volumetric productivities of a wide number of therapeutic products, nutriceuticals and special chemicals. New bioreactor systems and knowledge gained using them will contribute to further development of both the red and the white biotech.

This is used mainly to check the surface cleanliness and order.17

19 ICTP Mineralogical collections With the inventory numbers belong the mineralogical collections to the largest and best organized university collections. They are internationally registered in a list of world-known collections in Europe.They were created by professor F. X. M. Zippe in the year 1835, enlarged by professor Jan Krejci, whose detailed catalogue of minerals issued in the year 1899 has been preserved till the present days. Professor Augustin Ondrej shaped the collections in such form which would well serve also to the next generation as a basis of science and pedagogic work.
