Market research solutions provider, Research and Markets has added the book titled "Diffusion in Nanoporous Materials" to its product offering. The book is co-authored by Jörg Kärger, Douglas M. Ruthven and Doros N. Theodorou and published by John Wiley and Sons.
Diffusion is the most natural fundamental phenomenon that occurs with molecules and atoms in all states of matter in the form of persistent, random movements. The phenomenon of diffusion is important as it plays a major role in shaping the performance of several technological procedures. The book offers a preamble to diffusion in microporous solids.
The book which has been jointly authored by three renowned researchers in the field of microporous liquid diffusion, reads like a clear dissertation rather than a collection of individual review articles. The book covers theoretical basics, experimental observation, molecular modeling and technical applications.
Drawn heavily from the book “Diffusion in Zeolites and other Microporous Solids” published in 1992, the book elaborates on the speed at which the field has advanced since that time. Some of the topics elucidated are micro-imaging and single particle tracking, single file diffusion, new classes of nanoporous materials, interference microscopy to monitor transient profiles, sorption kinetics, new techniques of molecular modeling, measurement of elementary diffusion processes, molecular dynamics simulations, imaging of transient concentration profiles, chromatographic and permeation methods of measuring intraparticle diffusion, amorphous materials and extracrystalline (meso/macro) pores, metal organic frameworks, Zeolite membranes, and diffusional effects in Zeolite catalysts.
