Abstract

A review. This document deals with the characterization of porous materials having pore widths in the macropore range of 50 nm to 500 μm. In recent years, the development of advanced adsorbents and catalysts (e.g., monoliths having hierarchical pore networks) has brought about a renewed interest in macropore structures. Mercury intrusion-extrusion porosimetry is a well-established method, which is at present the most widely used for detg. the macropore size distribution. However, because of the reservations raised by the use of mercury, it is now evident that the principles involved in the application of mercury porosimetry require reappraisal and that alternative methods are worth being listed and evaluated. The reliability of mercury porosimetry is discussed in the first part of the report along with the conditions required for its safe use. Other procedures for macropore size anal., which are critically examd., include the intrusion of other non-wetting liqs. and certain wetting liqs., capillary condensation, liq. permeation, imaging, and image anal. The statistical reconstruction of porous materials and the use of macroporous ref. materials (RMs) are also examd. Finally, the future of macropore anal. is discussed. [on SciFinder(R)]
