Research Interests

  • Fundamental study of methane-water cluster in confined space by Monte Carlo simulation methods
  • Non local Density Functional Theory vs. Grand Canonical Monte Carlo simulations for non-spherical fluid adsorption systems
  • Adsorption and desorption of pure fluids and mixtures inside and outside of carbon nanohorn bundles
  • Adsorption and desorption of long linear alkanes, branched alkanes, alkenes, cyclic alkane, aromatics and chlorinated compounds
  • Adsorption of strong polar fluids (water, ammonia, alcohols, ketones) in carbon materials
  • Fundamental study of hysteresis and bridging between clusters of neighbouring sites in confined spaces
  • Surface diffusion of pure and mixtures of strongly adsorbing vapours in activated carbon particle
