Abstract  

The time necessary for the measurement of gas adsorption on a solid can be substantially reduced by using Jäntti's directions for data interpretation. This procedure already delivers results after measuring only a few values of the adsorbed mass. In earlier papers we introduced a second order adaptation to Jäntti's method to broaden its applicability. In the present paper we apply this second order treatment to the adsorption of water vapour from moistened air. Specially we pay attention to the diffusion delay caused by the boundary layer around the sample.

Abstract  

Jntti introduced a method to calculate the adsorption equilibrium by measuring the actual adsorbed amount three times after a change to the gas pressure. By this method the experimental time for adsorption measurement can be considerably shortened. The procedure was developed for use in adsorption measurements where the adsorbed masses are directly measured with a balance. In the present paper we will demonstrate that the method is particularly useful in volumetric (manometric) measurements.

Abstract  

Jäntti introduced a method to calculate the adsorption equilibrium by the measurement of the actual adsorbed amount at three times after a change of the gas pressure. He applied that method for gas/solid systems in which simple adsorption processes occur and for an infinite number of adsorption sites. In the present paper we discuss the case that the number of sites is decreasing with increasing coverage.

Abstract  

Jntti published in 1970 a method to obtain values of the sorption parameters at an early stage of gravimetric sorption measurements. In the present paper we apply that method to volumetric sorption measurements to discuss its applicability. A method is presented to cope with inaccuracies when using Jntti’s method. This will be of special importance for volumetric measurements where accuracy plays a major part. In the paper a second order regression method is used. We use a computer simulation as well as experimental data on desorption of nitrogen from a silica aerogel at 77 K.

Abstract  

Jntti introduced a method to calculate the final value of the adsorbed mass already in a very early stage of adsorption measurements. His method was restricted to gravimetric measurements and to adsorptions, which satisfy the simplest molecular model. One of the advantages of his method was that when more complicated molecular models were necessary, the curve resulting from Jntti`s calculations showed discrepancies from the curve predicted for the simple situation. We used such deviations to evaluate the parameters of the models necessary for the explanation of the measurements. One of the examples we discussed concerned the influence of the occurrence of two parallel and simultaneous adsorptions. In the present paper we discuss the application of these results to adsorption onto a surface where roughness could be expected to play a part. If we consider a rough surface as the sum of two extra surfaces we can apply Jntti’s method by using our former results of parallel adsorption. We characterise roughness by two parameters which we evaluated with Jntti’s method. We emphasise that the existence of roughness is not demonstrated by Jntti’s method, but that the method is useful for the evaluation of parameters introduced by other arguments or from other sources.

Abstract  

Jntti introduced a method to reduce the time required for the stepwise measurement of adsorption isotherms. After each pressure change he measured the adsorbed mass three times and calculated its equilibrium value at the new pressure. In the present paper, we discuss the applicability of this method in a broader scope without starting from a given combination of sorptive and adsorbent and the influence of measuring inaccuracies. The method is applied to detect whether the adsorption process is based on more than one adsorption mechanism or not.
