Micromeritics Announces Physical Adsorption Webinar

June 15, 2010

"Physical Adsorption-An Analytical Technique for Characterizing Surface and Pore Features of Solids,” the fourth in Micromeritics’ series of webinars highlighting applications, theory, and instrumentation, will be broadcast at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, June 24.

Surface area and porosity are important physical properties that influence the quality, utility, and handling of many materials, which often must be carefully engineered to perform specific functions. Differences in the surface area and porosity of material that otherwise may have the same physical dimensions can greatly influence its performance characteristics. Therefore, it is critically important that these characteristics be accurately determined and controlled.

Physical adsorption is a technique used to characterize the surface and pore features of solids-that is, the materials’ texture. The adsorption isotherm generated by the physical adsorption technique enables one to characterize a solids’ texture by determining its surface area, porosity, and total pore volume.

This live webinar will define, discuss the theory of, and include examples of the use of the physical adsorption technique for characterizing surface and pore features of solids.
