Surface area and porosimetry
Suiting this phenomenon, it is possible to derive information about the surface area and the porosity of a material. In particular, measuring the gas adsorption isotherms, which show the amount of gas adsorbed in the sample as a function of its pressure at constant temperature.
This instrument is installed at the Bioenergy & Biofuels LAB and has been funded by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano in the frame of the development of the NOI Techpark.
