Modelling gas adsorption in slit-pores using Monte Carlo simulation

Sweatman, M.B. and Quirke, N. (2001) Modelling gas adsorption in slit-pores using Monte Carlo simulation. Molecular Simulation, 27 (5-6). pp. 295-321. ISSN 0892-7022

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.
