    Summary
    A method for analyzing the state of the adsorption phase was developed on the basis of statistical thermodynamics for the case of equilibrium adsorption of binary gaseous mixtures. The procedure for treating experimental data to determine the Helmholtz energy and other thermodynamic functions of a mixture of molecules occluded within zeolite cavities was proposed. A measure of ideal behavior of a mixture of a small number of molecules in the micropore was formulated; in the asymptotic limit such a behavior leads to the Raoult law and to assumption of the validity of the Raoult law when moving along the line of constant value of the Gibbs integral in the ideal adsorption solution theory.
