Part of the Particle Technology Series book series (POTS, volume 16)


The vacuum volumetric, or static, method is used to determine the monolayer capacity of a catalyst sample from which certain important characteristics such as active metal area, dispersion, crystallite size, etc., may be derived by the acquisition of adsorption isotherms.
