Modelling gas adsorption in slit-pores using Monte Carlo simulation

Abstract

We discuss the use of Monte Carlo simulation to model the equilibrium adsorption of gases in slit pores. Databases of adsorption isotherms have been calculated for nitrogen, carbon-monoxide, methane and carbon-dioxide for a range of pressures, pore widths and temperatures. We discuss the implications of these results for materials characterisation procedures based on gas adsorption data.
