Breakthrough Adsorption: Theory and Analysis of Adsorption in Zeolites and Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs)

Breakthrough is the measurement of changing concentration versus time at the outlet of an adsorption column. Breakthrough allows users to assess their adsorbent media and calculate the quantity of gas, or vapor, adsorbed by an adsorbent under dynamic flow. Breakthrough has applications in separations, adsorption, pressure swing adsorption, and temperature swing adsorption. Breakthrough offers several…

Characterizing Li-ion Battery Separators: Pore Structure Determination

ÔĽŅ Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are an advanced technology that will play a key role in the trend toward renewable and sustainable industrial electrification solutions. The AutoPore V Series utilizes the Mercury Porosimetry analysis technique, based on the intrusion of mercury into a porous structure under stringently controlled pressures. Besides offering speed, accuracy, and a wide…

Testing Powders at Elevated Temperatures

  Quantifying the impact of temperature on bulk powder properties such as flowability for more effective process optimization. In this webinar, Laura Shaw, Applications Specialist at Freeman Technology, will discuss how temperature affects powder behavior and consider the requirements for testing at elevated temperature. Experimental data will be presented demonstrating the effect of temperature changes…

Best Practice for BET Surface Area

  The specific surface area of a material, often referred to as BET surface area, is an important parameter throughout all kinds of industries. Whether it is in the field of adsorbents, additive manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, or catalyst research, this parameter helps in quality control, to optimize processes, and improve material performance. Even though the determination…

Unified Approach to Understanding Porous Materials

  This webinar presents a generalized approach to modeling the pore size distribution which has been developed to determine the complete distribution of macro-, meso-, and micro-pores. Rather than using a fragmented approach of simple overlays from individual techniques, the Unified Method provides a full pore size distribution and improved estimate of total pore volume…
