DVS and IGC, advanced sorption techniques for
physico-chemical characterisation: The latest applications on porous materials, fuel cells, MOFs and membranes
The workshop covers in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) technique, from theory to main applications, and iGC-SEA (Inverse Gas Chromatography – Surface Energy Analyser). It is aimed for industry professionals, researchers and PhD students. Attendees will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC techniques in characterising materials such as porous materials, catalysis, fuel cells, carbon, zeolite and MOFs.
- DVS and iGC-SEA – advanced sorption techniques for physico-chemical characterization of complex solids
- Capability of the instruments and an overview of applications in various industries
- Some examples and case studies such as moisture sorption properties of materials relating to diffusion and permeability studies; surface energy, surface heterogeneity mapping, and adhesion/cohesion, BET surface areas and water sorption isotherm
- Overview of benefits when coupled with different microscopic and spectroscopic techniques (Raman/IR/video camera)
- Understanding surface energy (SE) and the different experimental techniques in measuring SE
