Abstract

Data obtained from gaseous sorption isotherms of CO2 on eight organic films at three temperatures and three pressures were evaluated for evidences of chemisorption and physical adsorption. The rates of sorption, affected by both temperature and pressure, were analyzed by calculating the perameters of the Elovich equation and those of Barrer's solution of Fick's law for diffusion. Through a consideration of the Elovich parameters, the sorption coefficients, the limiting diffusion coefficients, and the activation energies for diffusion it appears that the rate of interaction of CO2 with these organic films is primarily a diffusion-controlled process.
