MRS Bulletin Technical Feature Article

An article co-authored by Dr Darren Broom from Hiden Isochema and Professor Mark Thomas of Newcastle University has just been published in MRS Bulletin.

Entitled “Gas adsorption by nanoporous materials: Future applications and experimental challenges”, the article provides an overview of some of the emerging applications in the field, including hydrogen and methane storage and carbon capture and sequestration, and discusses the measurement techniques used to determine both single component and multicomponent adsorption equilibria and kinetics.

The latter part focuses on the experimental challenges involved in the measurement of the gas sorption properties of nanoporous materials both at elevated pressures and from multicomponent mixtures. These two measurement types are important for practical gas adsorption applications, and elevated pressure measurements, in particular, are one of Hiden Isochema’s specialities.*

* We have, after all, been designing, manufacturing and installing high pressure gas sorption analyzers for more than 20 years.
