Hydrophobic Porous Material Adsorbs Small Organic Molecules
Author and Affiliation:
Sharma, Pramod K.(Caltech)
Hickey, Gregory S.(Caltech)
Abstract: Composite molecular-sieve material has pore structure designed specifically for preferential adsorption of organic molecules for sizes ranging from 3 to 6 angstrom. Design based on principle that contaminant molecules become strongly bound to surface of adsorbent when size of contaminant molecules is nearly same as that of pores in adsorbent. Material used to remove small organic contaminant molecules from vacuum systems or from enclosed gaseous environments like closed-loop life-support systems.
