Surface Area Analyzers

The surface area, which can be influenced by porosity is an important property of a material in some applications such as catalysis, sorbants, pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials. The ability to measure surface area is hence extremely important in comparing and and evaluating materials for these applications as it can influence their effectiveness and reactivity. The BET method is the most common one for measuring surface area of materials and involved measuring how much gas is adsorbed onto the surface of the material in question.
