Accessible Surface Area of Porous Materials: Understanding Theoretical Limits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article, computational tools are applied to establish a theoretical limit of the accessible surface area in porous structures. For both crystalline and disordered structures the theoretical limit of the surface area is estimated at about 15000 m2/g. For models of disordered carbons based on random packings of platelets, this limit is estimated at about 6400 m2/g.
