The Q-TG mass loss and first derivative Q-DTG mass loss accompanying benzene thermodesorption from silica gel samples under
quasi-isothermal conditions were studied with a Derivatograph Q-1500 D (MOM, Hungary). The isotherms of adsorption-desorption
of benzene vapour on different porous silica gels were measured gravimetrically by using a McBain balance. The benzene mass
loss in the adsorption region, obtained from the Q-TG curves, and the adsorption capacity, established gravimetrically, exhibited
a satisfactory correlation.
