Modern approaches to studying gas adsorption in nanoporous carbons

Author affiliations

Abstract

Conventional approaches to understanding the gas adsorption capacity of nanoporous carbons have emphasized the relationship with the effective surface area, but more recent work has demonstrated the importance of local structures and pore-size-dependent adsorption. These developments provide new insights into local structures in nanoporous carbon and their effect on gas adsorption and uptake characteristics. Experiments and theory show that appropriately tuned pores can strongly enhance local adsorption, and that pore sizes can be used to tune adsorption characteristics. In the case of H2 adsorbed on nanostructured carbon, quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering probes demonstrate novel quantum effects in the motion of adsorbed molecules.
