Online workshop with Birmingham University

Sorption Technology: The key methods in investigating vapor sorption properties

Date: Tuesday, 23 June 2020

Time: 13:00 – 15:00 BST

The workshop covers in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) techniques and its applications on studies of materials such as powders, films, nanomaterials, composites, polymers among others.

DVS system allows for real-time monitoring and controlling of vapor and gas concentration for sorption measurements in solid state materials. The sorption mechanism may be investigated from sorption/desorption isotherms, hysteresis effects, and sorption kinetics. The combination of a video microscope and vibrational spectroscopic techniques with DVS would allow for increased understanding of vapor-induced structural changes of solid materials.

Inverse Gas Chromatography on the other hand, is specially designed to determine the surface energy heterogeneity but nevertheless suitable for measuring different surface and bulk properties of solid materials including acid-base properties, heat of sorption, glass transition temperature, solubility parameters.


    • DVS Flow systems – Introduction & Applications (25 min + Q&A)
    • iGC-SEA techniques – Introduction & Applications (25 min + Q&A)
    • Software demonstration 20mins
    • Instrument demonstration

The workshop in organised in partnership with University of Birmingham.

About University of Birmingham

Birmingham Uni The University of Birmingham (informally Birmingham University) is a public research university located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom. It received its royal charter in 1900 as a successor to Queen’s College, Birmingham (founded in 1825 as the Birmingham School of Medicine and Surgery) and Mason Science College (established in 1875 by Sir Josiah Mason), making it the first English civic or ‘red brick’ university to receive its own royal charter. It is a founding member of both the Russell Group of British research universities and the international network of research universities, Universitas 21. Visit the website »
