Title: Seminar: Effective Solutions for Material Characterization

Seminar: Effective Solutions for Material Characterization

Porous materials like activated carbons, zeolites, or metal organic frameworks largely owe their industrial value to the ability to control the rate of transport of different molecules. Physical Gas Adsorption and Chemisorption experiments are standard techniques for the characterization of porous solids. Chemisorption e.g. is used to quantitatively measure the number of surface-active sites – which are key to promote a specified catalytic reaction. Interpreting critical parameters like the active element, metal dispersion, and surface acidity are key to produce meaningful data.

Prof Dr Petra de Jongh, Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science, Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis at Utrecht University and Micromeritics Instrument Corporation will host a seminar on

Lectures will cover Chemisorption and Gas Adsorption techniques, as well as methods to determine Density, Porosity and Behavior of Powders. The University will also offer a tour through their laboratories. Our seminar will benefit intermediate and advanced users in academia, R&D, production or quality control. It not only refreshes basic knowledge but also gives you a comprehensive overview and introduces new trends in Chemisorption and Gas Adsorption and other powder characterisation methods. Generate reliable answers for your research or work environment.

We look forward to welcoming you at Utrecht University on April 8, 2020! Our seminar is free of cost.
