Modelling gas adsorption in slit-pores using Monte Carlo simulation

M.B. Sweatman, N. Quirke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss the use of Monte Carlo simulation to model the equilibrium adsorption of gases in slit pores. Databases of adsorption isotherms have been calculated for nitrogen, carbon-monoxide, methane and carbon-dioxide for a range of pressures, pore widths and temperatures. We discuss the implications of these results for materials characterisation procedures based on gas adsorption data.
