Up: Porous Media Characterisation

http://www.ukc.ac.uk/physical-sciences/cmr/index.html 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.
