Abstract

We review recent progress made concerning the modelling of equilibrium gas mixture adsorption in activated carbons. Much of the discussion focuses on modern statistical mechanical methods, such as classical density functional theory and Monte-Carlo simulation, as well as the surface models employed, i.e. the surface characterisation, and we confine our attention to work that has been compared quantitatively with experiment. We will see that for less demanding scenarios, i.e. relatively simple gas mixtures adsorbed at supercritical temperatures, current methods are satisfactory. But further developments in our models and theories are probably needed to describe the adsorption of more complex adsorbates such as those involving water at room temperature.
