Screening of Porous Materials by Thermal Response Measurements


  • This contribution is based on a presentation during the 24. Deutsche Zeolith-Tagung, Magdeburg, March 2012.


Adsorption thermal response screening by optical adsorption calorimetry was recently demonstrated to be a versatile tool for rapid surface area and adsorption capacity testing of porous materials. Beyond the high throughput approach, further insight in possibilities and application examples for the method will be presented. Especially a rapid classification of porous materials regarding their pore properties and the possibility to evaluate adsorption kinetics by using thermal response measurements will be discussed.
