Characterization of Sub- and Super-Critical Fluids in Nanomaterials (2003–2005)

Abstract:
In recent years, nano-porous materials have become the most potential media for applications in the areas of separation and purification, with materials such as carbon alloy, activated carbon fibre, carbon nanotube and their derivatives. Their effective utilisation depends on how well we characterise them for their adsorption capacities. In this project, we propose a new model for this characterisation and this model can be used for the prediction of adsorption of multicomponent systems, which are common in separation and purification industries, without recourse to extensive experimentation. The success of this model could translate to cost savings in those industries.''
