(a) Transmission electron micrograph photos of AC (type Maxsorb III) at nanoscale magnifications. (b) How adsorbate molecules huddle in adsorbent pore for any pressure , temperature , and surface coverage .
SSA as a function of the enthalpy of adsorption for different carbonaceous materials. Here, it is found that Maxsorb III is the best carbon based porous material for methane storage until now. Here, , , and for the present model.
The surface energy distribution function is plotted against for the least adsorption energy of 2RT. The best porous carbonaceous material for methane adsorption will approach . The parameters indicate the surface energy factor.
A plot of SSA and for (i) ACs and carbon and (ii) SWNTs and systems. For best fitting, the present model can be modified by ; accounts for the surface energy factor and is the heterogeneity constant. In this analysis, .
The surface energy distribution function as a function of for the least adsorption energy of , which equals the enthalpy of evaporation of at normal boiling point for different surface energy distribution factors. Hence, for different systems and for different SWNTs and systems.
