For the fourth time, the Institut für Nichtklassische Chemie is organizing the “Leipzig Symposium on Dynamic Sorption” on April 14th, 2021, this time in online format. It takes place in connection with the "Workshop on Adsorption and Characterization of Porous Solids" (April 13th, organized by 3P Instruments). An interactive FAQ and discussion round on April 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon rounds off the program. The participants have the opportunity to present themselves and their research in a 10-minute lecture and to get to know the other guests. As part of the events, the participants can exchange ideas on the investigation of established adsorbents and new materials such as MOFs and COFs for technical application as well as for the general characterization of porous materials. The focus of the symposium is on dynamic sorption processes, which are viewed from different perspectives and which accompany the development from research to industry. The event serves to exchange experiences and to inspire research and development using new measuring techniques. In addition, experts in this field present an overview of the modeling of dynamic sorption processes. The lectures will give by national and international guests from research and industry. You can find the flyer with the program and registration here.

Successful participation in an international interlab study for providing a reference sorption isotherm for Methane
The Institut für Nichtklassische Chemie e.V. (INC) in Leipzig successfully participate in an interlab study for preparing a reference isotherm for methane under high pressure atmosphere. This interlab study was managed by the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology of the U.S. Department of Commerce), with 20 participating institutions from all over the world. The INC first certified its suitability for attending in the study by successfully measuring a CO2 reference isotherm. The subsequent measurement of several sorption isotherms of methane on the NIST reference material RM 88590 (zeolite Y) at 25 °C and up to a pressure of 7.5 MPa results in the provision of a reference isotherm for methane. Details of the work can be found in the literature given below. This contribution shows that the employees of the INC in the field of adsorption have the technical equipment and the necessary know-how to provide excellent thermodynamic data by means of experiments.
