Porous carbons for gas storage and separation: characterisation and performance

B McEnaney, E Alain, Y F Yin, T J Mays

Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


In a review it was shown that modern absorbent carbons could be designed for specific applications in the fields of gas storage and gas sepn. Chem. vapor infiltration is described as a method to control the pore size of mol. sieve carbon, and by use of such material membranes could be designed for the sepn. of gas mixts. Absorbent carbons could be candidates for the storage of vehicle fuel gases, such as natural gas or H2.
