Knowledge of the surface chemistry and surface structure is essential in the design, production, and application of a catalytic material.
The Micromeritics ChemiSorb Series analysers, available from Particle & Surface Sciences , combine the ability to perform both physical adsorption and chemisorption measurements in a low-cost and upgradeable system.
The basic ChemiSorb 2720 analysers make chemisorption (percent dispersion, active metal area, crystallite size, and surface acidity) and physisorption (single-point BET surface area, Langmuir surface area, and total pore volume) analyses affordable for even the most modestly funded laboratories such as teaching and research applications where owning an instrument had once been impractical.
The instrument features:
- Dual ports, one for analysis and one for sample preparation
- Built-in sample cell cooling fan
- Four carrier gas inlets
- A preparation gas inlet
- The optional capability to accommodate a mass spectrometer or other external detector
- If analytical needs grow, the basic system can be upgraded to provide more capability.
The instrument includes an injector loop valve in addition to the injection septum; loops are easily exchangeable to provide different injection volumes. Three built-in preparation gas inlets and four carrier gas inlets are included.
