Quantachrome Instruments will be participating at the Carbon 2010 conference in Clemson, South Carolina, July 11-16 with a scientific contribution presented by Dr Matthias Thommes, Quantachrome's Director of Applied Science.
He will present a paper entitled "Advanced Physical Adsorption Characterization of Nanoporous Carbons: Assessing Surface (Chemistry) Properties and Pore Structure by a Combination of Water, Argon/Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide Adsorption" co-authored with Catherine Morlay, Zheling Zhang, Riaz Ahmad and Jean-Pierre Joly, and which reflects work performed in a collaboration between Quantachrome Instruments (USA) and the Université de Lyon-CNRS, IRCELYON (France).
This years conference theme: "From Nano to Macro" reflects not only the advances in nanocarbons which continue to reveal exciting new applications, from electronic to optic to catalytic, but also the resurgence in interest in bulk carbon materials, driven by increased demand in areas such as energy and transportation.
Quantachrome Instruments is also pleased to be an event Sponsor and will be promoting its products and support services during the associated exhibition. To be highlighted is the recently introduced Autosorb-iQ gas sorption analyzer which, in the iQ2 version, is capable of analyzing two samples for detailed micropore size distribution simultaneously.
