Catalysts, Adsorbents, Porous Materials Characterization: How Can Calorimetry and Thermal Methods Help?
|Setaram Instrumentation Presents:
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.

Innovations in Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry: Oil and Gas Applications
To properly design oil pipelines, processing reactors, and upgrading and recovery processes, it is necessary to gain a complete thermodynamic understanding of the heat transfer, chemistry, pressure changes, and mass transfer within the system. This allows careful consideration not only of factors affecting reaction or extraction efficiency, but also of factors affecting process safety. This webinar provides an overview of thermal analysis and calorimetry techniques, with a focus on the following applications:
- Wax Appearance Temperature and flow assurance
- Process safety
- Gas hydrate formation
- Enhanced oil recovery processes
- Oil upgrading
- Coal gasification
Technical considerations on approaching these problems will be examined, as will the optimal technique(s) for collecting the necessary data. Techniques including high pressure DSC, high pressure TGA, and three-dimensional (Calvet type) DSC will be examined. This webinar will be of interest for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, as well as academics, industry scientists, and chemical engineers in the field of petroleum science.
