Abstract

The sorption properties of carbon nanosystems are investigated using appropriate distribution functions. The adsorption capacities of carbon nanofibers for hydrogen are calculated in the singlet approximation under the assumption that adsorbent molecules elastically interact with walls. The optimum interplanar distances determined for carbon nanofibers are as follows: 0.39 ± 0.07 nm for the reduced density n 0 = 0.15 and 0.46 ± 0.04 nm for the reduced density n 0 = 0.3.
