Physical Adsorption Presentation






Physical Adsorption – A Powerful Technique for Determining the Surface and Pore Structure of Solids
The use of physical adsorption for the materials characterization remains a powerful technique for determining the surface area and pore structure of solids.  This seminar will compare traditional techniques for surface area and pore structure to modern techniques including the application of non-local density functional theory and statistical mechanics.  Emphasis will be placed upon the application of these techniques to a wide range of applications and materials.  Additional topics will also include the use of high pressure adsorption and the determination of the heat of adsorption for adsorbents.
