Porous Media Characterisation
Porous materials occur widely and have many important
applications. They can, for example, offer a convenient method of
imposing fine structure on adsorbed materials. They can be used
as substrates to support catalysts and can act as highly
selective sieves or cages that only allow access to molecules up
to a certain size.
Food is often finely structured.
Many biologically active materials are porous, as are many
construction and engineering materials.
Porous geological materials are of great interest; high porosity rock
may contain water, oil or gas; low porosity rock may act as a cap to
porous rock, and is of importance for active waste sealing.
