This is the first volume of Advances in Nanoporous Materials, a new book
series devoted to the science and application of all kinds of nanoporous
solids. Its intention is to publish comprehensive reviews of lasting value in
the field of nanoporous materials written by renowned experts. Its scope
covers all aspects of nanoporous solids, including their preparation and
structure, their post-synthetic modification, methods for their characterization
as well as their application in catalysis and adsorption/separation....
When asked about the most important technology for the Process Industries, most people might offer 'reaction'. If one considers where value is really added, it is more probably in the separation and purification of the products. It is therefore a great pleasure to find that Professors Crittenden and Thomas have made a major contribution to this with their new book. My career has been spent in the Industrial Gases industry where cost-effectiveness of separation processes is the main way of creating competitive advantage....
This book is intended to present for the first time experimental methods to measure equilibria states of pure and mixed gases being adsorbed on the surface of solid materials. It has been written for engineers and scientists from industry and academia who are interested in adsorption based gas separation processes and/or in using gas adsorption for characterization of the porosity of solid materials
Since the invention of synthetic zeolites in 1959, innovations in sorbent development and adsorption process cycles have made adsorption a key separations tool in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. In all future energy and environmental technologies, adsorption will likely play either a key or a limiting role. Some examples are hydrogen storage and CO removal (from hydrogen, to

The book "Developments in Electrochemistry" contains five feature articles in recent advanced electrochemistry. These selected feature articles emphasize physical phenomena rather than mathematical formalisms of electrochemistry.
Natural gas has traditionally been used as a feedstock for the chemical industry, and as a fuel for process and space heating. Recent advances in exploration, drilling techniques and hydraulic fracturing have made it possible for natural gas to become available in abundance (as of 2012). As natural gas displaces traditional petroleum use in various sectors, a certain amount of disruption is likely.
This book is intended as a guide to the selection or design of the principal kinds of chemical process equipment by engineers in school and industry. The level of treatment assumes an elementary knowledge of unit operations and transport phenomena.
● Adsorption chromatography
• The stationary phase is an adsorbent (like silica gel or any other
• The separation is based on repeated adsorption-desorption
● Normal-phase chromatography
• The stationary bed is strongly polar in nature (e.g., silica gel),
and the mobile phase is nonpolar (such as n-hexane or
• Polar samples are retained on the polar surface of the column
packing longer than less polar materials.
5A, 4A and 3A zeolites were successfully prepared using solid seeds at pilot scale. The adsorption properties of 5A, 4A and 3A zeolites were determined by adsorption isotherm method. The results showed that water adsorption capacity and rate of 5A and 4A zeolites were higher than those of 3A zeolite. Even at low vapor pressure of water of 4 mmHg, adsorption capacity of 5A, 4A and 3A zeolites also reached about 23%, 22% and 17%, respectively, and was much higher than that of silicagel (5%).
