The declared objective of this book is to provide an introductory review of the various theoretical and practical aspects of adsorption by powders and porous solids with particular reference to materials of technological importance. The primary aim is to meet the needs of students and non-specialists who are new to surface science or who wish to use the advanced techniques now available for the determination of surface area, pore size and surface characterization. In addition, a critical account is given of recent work on the adsorptive properties of activated carbons, oxides, clays and zeolites.
Adsorption phenomena play a vital role in heterogenous catalysis and in many solid state reactions. Porous adsorbents are widely employed for inter alia gas separation, water treatment and respiratory protection. The laboratory use of adsorption measurements is becoming increasingly important for the characterization of finely divided and porous materials.
Adsorption by Powders and Porous Solids<$> provides a unique overview of the theoretical and practical aspects of adsorption, with particular reference to the study of the surface properties of materials of technological importance. The book gives:
* an introduction to the relevant aspects of adsorption science
* a critical appraisal of recent developments
* guidance on the determination and interpretation of adsorption data.
The book will appeal to post-graduate students and others who wish to undertake adsorption measurements. For all readers, the book also provides an up-to-date survey of the adsorptive properties of active carbons, oxides, clays and zeolites and some novel adsorbants.
Jean Rouquerol is director of the Centre de Thermodynamique, and a leading authority on adsorption thermodynamics and the methodology of thermal analysis and adsorption calorimetry
