Discussion of thermodynamic data obtained by adsorption gas chromatography of hydrocarbons on a new graphitized carbon black with a high specific surface area

  • A. R. Mastrogiacomo
  • E. Pierini


A new graphitized carbon black (Carbograph 5) with a specific surface area (560 m2 g−1) greater than those of commerically available graphitized carbons was studied by gas chromatography to determine the enthalpy, entropy, and free energy of adsorption of a series of alkanes (C2−C6). The adsorption properties were also investigated by considering changes in the isosteric heats and entropies of adsorption when a nonpolar stationary phase (squalane) was added to the adsorbent. The data obtained are discussed and compared with literature values for other graphitized carbon blacks.
