The Dubinin theory of micropore filling and the adsorption of simple molecules by active carbons over a large range of temperature

Stoeckli, Fritz ; Houriet, Jean-Philippe

It is shown that the values of the structural constant B and of the micropore volume Wo can change considerably for certain active carbons, when the adsorption of simple gases is measured over a large range of temperature. The changes are probably related to ultramicroporosity, present in heterogeneous carbons, and to activated diffusion into typical micropores, through... More

    Summary
    It is shown that the values of the structural constant B and of the micropore volume Wo can change considerably for certain active carbons, when the adsorption of simple gases is measured over a large range of temperature. The changes are probably related to ultramicroporosity, present in heterogeneous carbons, and to activated diffusion into typical micropores, through constrictions. It is suggested that the quantity B is not necessarily a constant for a given solid, as assumed previously.
