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…
