Characterization of Porous Carbons by Gas Sorption
MOFs, with their large pore volumes and high surface areas, are potential candidates for many applications including gas (carbon capture) and separation, energy storage/batteries, and catalysis, among others. Are you working with porous carbons and are you always in search of ways to best characterize the available porosity of your material? In this webinar, we will discuss critical parameters that correlate to several applications, such as surface area, pore size and pore volume, and uptake of gases at high pressures. Furthermore, we will address how gas sorption can determine these important properties.
- Choice of adsorptive for carbon characterization
- Surface area, pore size and volume via gas adsorption
- Quenched solid density functional theory for the calculation of pore size distributions
- High pressure gas sorption for storage and separation applications
Trainer: Dr. Katie Cychosz Struckhoff
Dr. Struckhoff, Anton Paar QuantaTec’s head of applications, has more than 10 years of experience in powder and porous materials characterization, most of those with Quantachrome Instruments before Anton Paar’s acquisition in 2018. Dr. Struckhoff graduated from the University of Michigan with a PhD in materials chemistry. She is the author on 30 scientific publications in the porous materials field, has presented at major conferences around the world, and advises researchers daily in experimental design and data interpretation.
