Online workshop with Royce Institute

Sorption Technology: The key methods in investigating vapor sorption properties

Date: Friday, 22 May 2020

Start Time: 13:00 – 15:00 BST Check your local time

The workshop covers in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) techniques and its applications and will focus on characterising materials.

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.

Who will benefit in attending?

The workshop will benefit individuals working on the following:

    • Graphene, for a range of applications including membranes for filtration and coatings, energy storage and functional composites
    • Biomaterials
    • Nanofabrication
    • Batteries
    • Coatings for aerospace and automotive industry
    • Thin films

Guest speakers:

    • Dr. David Stanley, CDT Development Manager
    • Prof. Daryl Williams, Professor of Particle Science in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College
    • Meishan Guo, Application Engineer at Surface Measurement Systems

The workshop in organised in partnership with Royce Institute.
