"...the ground-breaking, new materials in the fields of hydrogen storage,
lithium ion batteries, CO2 and methane sequestration and so on, absolutely require
state-of-the-art characterization technologies, and it is in response to the
ever changing needs of the materials science world that Quantachrome constantly
improves both its instruments and associated software products. For example,
we are world-leaders in the application of DFT methods to pore size, volume
and surface area determination."
