Adsorption Properties of Surface Modified Carbons with Metal Nanoparticles
The effect of surface modification by nanoparticles of metal compounds was investigated by means of gas and vapor adsorption analysis. The surface of activated carbon fiber cloths was modified by loading of Li2CO3 and MgO nanoparticles. The particles on the carbon surface played as initial adsorption site of water molecules, leading to the promotion of micropore filling without diminishing the micropore volume of the porous carbon supports. The increasing characteristic adsorption energy suggested some interaction between methane molecules and the particles.
