Quantachrome Instruments announces next webinar in porous materials characterization series, titled "Physical Adsorption Characterization of Nanoporous Carbons". It will take place on December 15, 2011.
This Webinar is the second in a series addressing the proper analysis of physisorption isotherms in order to obtain an accurate and comprehensive surface and pore size/volume characterization of nanoporous materials. There is no charge, but pre-registration is required. Places are limited and cannot be guaranteed; those interested should send an email to request an invitation to email@example.com.
Dr Matthias Thommes, Quantachrome's Director of Applied Science, will present the state-or-the-art characterization of disordered active carbons but will also focus on the challenges which come with the emergence of novel materials with pre-designed pore morphology (obtained by synthesis routes which make use of structure directing agents, or hard templates).
The application of classical, macroscopic thermodynamic methods as well modern methods based on statistical mechanics (e.g. non-local density functional theory (NLDFT), quenched solid density functional theory (QSDFT) ) will be contrasted. The webinar will be presented live by Dr Thommes at 10:30am EST (3:30pm GMT), Thursday December 15, 2011. Full details are available at http://www.quantachrome.com/calendar/webinar_Dec15_2011.html .
