Read 11 answers by scientists with 17 recommendations from their colleagues to the question asked by Lakshminarayana Bhatta K G on I was wondering if there is a way to compare isotherms obtained by nitrogen adsorption technique (BET) [relative pressure(p/po) X volume(cc/g)] to water sorption ones [relative humidity(%) X.

Sorption isotherms are frequently used to characterize the structure of porous materials such as cement. Their interpretation has been somewhat hindered by the large hysteresis observed between the adsorption and desorption processes. for nitrogen (at K) and argon (at K) on porous Vycor glass.

We elaborate a novel hybrid nonlocal density functional theory (NLDFT) method for calculations of pore size distributions from adsorption isotherms in the entire range of micro- and mesopores.

The NLDFT method, applied to the adsorption branch of the isotherm, takes into. This article is cited by 17 publications. Payam Javadian, SeyedHosein Payandeh GharibDoust, Hai-Wen Li, Drew A.

The sorption mechanisms in porous materials have been of long standing interest and debate. Concretely, the involved hysteresis during nitrogen adsorption–desorption processes and its interpretation has represented an important challenge for experimentalists and by: Saxena, S.

Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) theory aims to explain the physical adsorption of gas molecules on a solid surface and serves as the basis for an important analysis technique for the measurement of the specific surface area of materials.

InStephen Brunauer, Paul Hugh Emmett, and Edward Teller published the first article about the BET theory in the Journal of. To describe sorption isotherms, a thermodynamic equation was proposed: A=A o /[1-(RT/g)lnφ], where A o is maximal sorption value, φ is relative pressure of vapors, and g is specific thermodynamic potential.

Depending on the g-value, this equation can describe isotherms of various shapes that occur for cellulose and its Size: KB. Sorption isotherms are frequently used to characterize the structure of porous materials such as cement.

Their interpretation has been somewhat hindered by the large hysteresis observed between the adsorption and desorption processes.

Here we model the hysteresis due to pore blocking, whereby water condensed in small pores. The rate and extent of uptake and release of moisture are critical in controlling the behavior of cementitious materials ranging from fluid transport to hygral deformations.

While classically determined using an equilibrium (static) salt solution method (Baroghel-Bouny in Cem Concr Res –, ), advanced capabilities offered by gravimetric dynamic vapor Cited by:   Nitrogen adsorption at 77 K is widely used for the determination of the surface area and pore size distribution of various porous materials.

The first stage in the interpretation of a nitrogen isotherm is the identification of the physisorption mechanism(s): that is monolayer-multilayer adsorption, capillary condensation or micropore by: Effect of Contact Time on Sorption. As shown in Figure 1, the adsorption rate was rapid for the first 60 min and decreased over time.

Equilibrium sorption was established after approximately min for ions at an initial concentration of mg L − the results it can be seen that the contact time required for maximum sorption of by different soil profile was dependent on the Cited by: 7.

Sorption isotherms and two examples of sorption scanning curves at 20 °C are presented. Results from three materials commonly used in screeded slabs are included, viz concrete W/Cconcrete W/Cand a screed, Floor Fibre by: For ease of interpretation, isotherms are often identified by Brunauer classifications (Brunauer, ).

Most food and pharmaceutical products fall under type I, II, or III. Type I isotherms are typical of very hygroscopic materials, Type II (sigmoidal) isotherms are typical for intermediate moisture As can be seen from these examples, an isotherm.

The process of Adsorption is usually studied through graphs know as adsorption isotherm. It is the graph between the amounts of adsorbate (x) adsorbed on the surface of adsorbent (m) and pressure at constant temperature. Different adsorption isotherms have been Freundlich, Langmuir and BET theory.

Experimental studies of sorption and transport of moisture in cement based materials with supplementary cementitious materials Most deterioration processes in cement based materials are closely related to moisture sorption and moisture transport properties.

Therefore, it is important to study these properties, both theoretically and by: 2. Moisture sorption isotherms describe the relationship between moisture content and water activity in food. This work presents basic concepts related to the sorption thermodynamics of water, the classification of isotherms, “uses and limitations of the models”, and measurement of sorption isotherms for food materials.

Isotherms predict product changes over time. Food manufacturers need to know how long it will be before their product molds, gets soggy, goes stale, becomes rancid, cakes, clumps, crystallizes, and becomes unacceptable to the moisture sorption isotherm is a powerful tool for predicting and extending the shelf life of a product.

It allows you to. The parameters of the solid-fluid interactions can then be obtained by fitting the calculated adsorption isotherms on a planar surface to the standard nitrogen and argon isotherms. The most prominent computer simulation method for the study of adsorption phenomena etc.

Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or dissolved solid to a surface. This process creates a film of the adsorbate on the surface of the process differs from absorption, in which a fluid (the absorbate) is dissolved by or permeates a liquid or solid (the absorbent), respectively.
