Prof. Ing. Miloslav Milichovský, PhD, DSc.
Research interests and activity:
The topic of his research work is concentrated on fundamental and applied problems of cellulose chemistry, papermaking chemistry and science, i.e. wet-end chemistry, coating chemistry, white water recirculation, paper converting etc. Milichovský has written or contributed to more as 130 scientifically and technical papers (cited more as 140). He has presented a number of papers at numerous conferences, local section meetings, seminars and other industry meetings. A lot of his research works from pulp and paper technology was realized (author or co-author about 100 technical and technological works). He also holds a lot of patents (34), especially for pulp and paper technology. A topic of his research and scientific works was mainly published in these journals:
Papír a celulóza (in Czech, English or German)
Zellstoff und Papier (in German)
Scientific Papers University of Pardubice (in Czech or English)
Chimia Drevesiny (in Russian)
Kolloidnyj Zhurnal (in Russian)
Tappi Journal (in English)
Cellulose Chemistry and Technology (in English or German)
Papier + Kunststoff Verarbeiter (in German)
Przegląd Papierniczy (in Polish or English)
Polymer International (in English)
Adsorption Science & Technology (in English)
Journal of Applied Polymer Science (in English)
However, his main scientific orientation has been focused on problems of water behaviour and interactions with hydrophilic interfaces in macro- and micro-reticular systems as represented by biomaterials predominantly on cellulosic base.
He worked up the SCHL theory and conception of hydration bonds as basic tool of supra- and hyper-molecular chemistry.
