题目：Recent progress in the pore structure analysis of nanoporous materials by physical adsorption
摘要：A comprehensive textural characterization of novel nanoporous materials has become more important than ever for the optimization of novel systems used in many important existing and potentially new applications. The most popular method to obtain surface area, pore size, pore size distribution and porosity information from powders and porous solids is gas adsorption. Within this context we will address important questions associated with the structural analysis of novel micro-mesoporous hybrid materials (e.g. hierarchically structured porous materials, micro-mesoporous zeolites, novel ordered nanoporous carbons materials, metal organic frameworks (MOFs).
Dr. Matthias Thommes
(Director, Applied Science, Quantachrome Instruments)
Dr. Thommes received his Doctorate in Physical Chemistry in 1993 at the Technical University Berlin (1992/93).
From 1992- 1995 Dr. Thommes was a Research Associate at the Iwan-N.-Stranski Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Technical University Berlin and Project Scientist for a microgravity experiment on critical adsorption which was carried out on the EURECA mission of the European Space Agency (ESA).
From 1996 to 1997, he was an ESA fellow and Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute for Physical Science and Technology at the University of Maryland at College Park, USA.
In 1998 Dr. Thommes joined Quantachrome, first as the Head of Application Department at Quantachrome GmbH in Germany, and then in 2001 as Director of Applied Science at the Quantachrome Headquarters in Boynton Beach, Florida, USA.
Dr. Thommes has authored and co-authored numerous scientific / technical publications (more than 80) in highly reputated journals (incl. Science) , invited reviews/book chapter, as well as a monograph on the Characterization of Porous Solids and Powders.
He has given more than 100 presentations, incl. invited plenary and keynote lectures at prestigious international scientific conferences and universities all over the world.
Dr. Thommes is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Adsorption Society (IAS), a Council Member of the International Mesotructured Materials Association (IMMA, 2006-2010), and a member of the Advisory Board of the journal Particle & Particle Systems Characterization.
Dr. Thommes is the Chairman of the new IUPAC (International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry) Task Group – “Physisorption of Gases, with Special Reference to the Evaluation of Surface Area and Pore Size Distributions”
He is convenor of the International Standard Organization (ISO) working group on Surface Area and Porosity (ISO/TC 24/WG3).
Dr. Thommes is also Chairman of ASTM C28-03 (Physical Properties of Ceramics).
