In April 1993, Micromeritics introduced DFT V1.00, the first commercially
available software package offering a practical method to routinely analyze
experimental adsorption isotherms using methods based on modern theoretical
physical chemistry. It was the culmination of an investigation by J.P. Olivier
and W.B. Conklin into a method by which the power of density functional theory
(DFT) could be utilized by any researcher or laboratory technician with a
Today, Micromeritics continues work in the area of isotherm data analysis and
is proud to introduce a new series of NL (non-local) DFT models for
characterizing porous carbons. These new models are based on recent work by J.
Jagiello and J.P. Olivier. The set also includes the new 2-D models, first
described in the November 2009 edition of the Journal of Physical Chemistry. For
