Immersion calorimetry is a useful tool for the characterization of solid surfaces in general, but in the case of microporous solids it usually requires complementary information, obtained from an adsorption isotherm. This article demonstrates the possibilities and the limitations of this technique when used alone. It appears that the use of a standard value for the enthalpy immersion does not...
