WEBINAR: NEW EQUIPMENT FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC) SORPTION BY THERMOGRAVIMETRY

The emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) has become one of the main concerns of numerous industries (transport, aerospace..) Due to their major impact on the environment and human health, international policies have become more and more restrictive with regard to VOC emissions.

Thermogravimetry is a key technique to characterize VOC sorption. However, the analysis of VOC remains a challenge in view of their high boiling temperature and their reactivity. In this context, the SETSYS Evolution has been adapted for the assessment of sorption capacities and kinetics of a couple adsorbent/ vapour from vacuum to atmospheric pressure. In this webinar, we will explore this new equipment through different applications.

WEBINAR: CATALYSTS, ADSORBENTS, POROUS MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION: HOW CAN CALORIMETRY AND THERMAL METHODS HELP?

Calorimetry and thermal methods are interesting characterization techniques as they allow porous materials users to have access to data like sorption capacity and sorption kinetics, which are related to the efficiency of the material. Additionally, they can provide key information about the energetics of interaction between a porous material and a test gas or liquid, and about the material’s surface properties. Many types of nano, micro or meso porous materials can be investigated, including Metal Organic Frameworks, zeolites, porous silica, activated carbons, etc…

After quickly introducing each technique, the presentation will focus on examples illustrating the different solutions to the different characterization challenges.

The webinar will be valuable for the researcher or engineers interested in characterizing CATALYSTS, ADSORBENTS, POROUS MATERIALS.

WEBINAR: INNOVATIVE CALORIMETRY SOLUTIONS WITH HIGH PRESSURE, STIRRED CELLS

High pressure calorimetry is a widespread technique for the characterization of materials and their reactions under process-like conditions for many applications. For example, the energy industry use it for gas hydrates formation / dissociation studies in the context of flow assurance or energy storage. The process safety field use it to produce thermodynamic data at the laboratory scale that can be used to design safe production processes.

After quickly introducing the calorimeters range of SETARAM Instrumentation, the presentation will focus on new high pressure cells with the capability of mechanically stirring the measured sample or reaction medium. As it will be showed with examples, this new type of cells solves a number of limitations of the currently available technologies.
