Micromeritics Awards the University of Hamburg a 3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzer - 6/07/2019
Micromeritics Instrument Corporation today announced it has awarded the University of Hamburg one of its 3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzers which is one of the most advanced physisorption instruments in the market. The 3Flex will benefit Prof. Dr. Michael Fröba’s group at the Institute of Inorganic and Applied Chemistry which is well-known for research in materials science with a strong focus on nanoporous materials and their usage in energy storage applications and the investigation of confinement effects. Micromeritics President, Preston Hendrix, said the award was granted specifically in recognition of the “valuable research contributions to material development and characterization” by the University’s Institute of Inorganic and Applied Chemistry under the direction of renowned Prof. Dr. Fröba.
Being an expert in the field of storing renewable energies, Prof. Fröba expects the 3Flex to help getting a better understanding of confinement effects in nanopores and their impact on the properties of guest compounds in the gaseous, liquid or solid state as the advanced design of the 3Flex allows to acquire high-resolution isotherms and starts in the 10-6 torr range (10-9 relative pressure range for N2).
The instrument comes with a Micromeritics Vapor Sorption option, which allows Prof. Fröba to also run water vapor experiments. It also includes the standard instrument warranty and application methods development support.
