Time Dependent Aspects of Adsorption: Evaluating the Lifetimes within the Hysteresis Loop

When fluids adsorb in mesoporous material in contact with a vapour reservoir, the phenomenon of hysteresis occurs frequently. It piques my interest because it appears to contradict thermodynamics, which states that a system’s response to a set of boundary conditions is unique, regardless of the system’s history. It is, on the other hand, reproducible in…

A New Theory and Its Applications: Fluids in Mesopores

Despite the fact that hysteresis in fluid adsorption in porous material has been known for over a century, the thermodynamic treatment of this phenomenon is still unknown. We propose that we recognize that thermodynamics is not designed to deal with constrained systems and develop a new set of rules to explain their behavior. This suggestion…
