e-SPRESSO WEBINAR: Applications and Challenges in High Pressure Gas Sorption

e-SPRESSO WEBINAR: Applications and Challenges in High Pressure Gas Sorption

Many industrial processes and environmentally important applications such as greenhouse gas sequestration and hydrogen storage rely on quantitative data regarding the sorption capacity of solid adsorbents under various temperature and pressure conditions. Compiled in labs, these data serve to evaluate and optimize naturally occurring and synthetic materials such as zeolites, metal-organic frameworks, carbons including coal, shale, and hydride-forming metals.

Key insights:
• The need for high-pressure measurements
• Contrast with low-pressure measurements
• The vacuum-volumetric technique
• Equations of state (EOS)
• Surface excess

In this webinar, you will learn why high-pressure measurements are important to so many industrial and environmental applications, and how we overcome challenges associated with measuring gas adsorption isotherms at high pressure.

Dr Martin A. Thomas has more than forty years of industrial experience in the characterization of powders and porous materials. After studying for his Master’s degree in analytical chemistry and then his Doctorate in inorganic/physical chemistry - both at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham (UK) - he joined Cookson Group's Central Research labs where he began his specialization in powders and porous materials. He joined ICI's Catalyst Research Centre (now a Johnson-Matthey facility) in 1985 and spent six years as a Principal Research Officer in charge of porous materials characterization.

In 1991 Dr. Thomas joined Quantachrome Instruments which became part of Anton Paar in 2018. He is currently serving as Lead Scientist for the Surface and Pores product line at Anton Paar.

Dr. Martin Thomas has authored several research articles and books and has also been co-author of ten patents relating to porous materials and their characterization.
