Abstract

A new classification of pore sizes is proposed which is consistent with the SI prefixes in contrast to the current IUPAC scheme. The new scheme is compared to the IUPAC scheme. The new scheme distinguishes between nanopores, micropores, and millipores, while the IUPAC scheme defines micropores, mesopores, and macropores. The nanopores, micropores, and millipores are further subdivided into sub-, inter-, and super categories. The pore size ranges of all these classes of solids are given. [on SciFinder (R)]
