Abstract

In order to assess and improve the quality of high pressure and temperature adsorption isotherms and differential enthalpies of adsorption on microporous and mesoporous materials, a specific thermostated device comprising a differential heat flow calorimeter coupled with a home-built manometric system has been built. The differential heat flow calorimeter is a Tian Calvet Setaram C80 model which can be operated isothermally, the manometric system is a stainless steel homemade apparatus. The thermostated coupled apparatus allows measurements for pressure up to 2.5 MPa and temperature from 303 to 423 K. Reliability and reproducibility were established by measuring adsorption isotherms on a benchmark sorbent (Filtrasorb F400). A detailed experimental study of the adsorption of pure carbon dioxide and methane has been made on activated carbons (Filtrasorb F400 and EcoSorb); a new procedure for determining the differential enthalpies of adsorption based on the stepwise method is also proposed. The error in the determination of the amount adsorbed is about 3.6%, and the error in the determination of the differential enthalpies of adsorption is 4%.
