Join Prof. Jennifer Wilcox and Dr. Erik Rupp (Stanford University) and Drs. Matthias Thommes and Katie Cychosz (Quantachrome Instruments) for a workshop that brings together students, faculty, and scientists from academia, industry and US National Laboratories. Invited Speakers include:
  • Mark Allendorf, Sandia National Laboratories
  • Ian Bourg, Lawrence Berkely National Laboratory
  • C.Y. Chen, Chevron Corporation
  • Jeffrey Long, University of California, Berkeley
  • Javier Garcia Martinez, University of Alicante, Rive Technology
  • Alex Neimark, Rutgers University
  • Michael Toney, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
  • Roger van Zee, National Institute of Standards and Technology
The workshop program consists of invited lectures, short talks, and discussion sessions. Selected specific topics include:
  • Correlating textural properties to applications of gas and energy storage, separations, and catalysis.
  • Discussing methods for assessing textural properties (e.g. surface area, pore size, porosity) of heterogeneous and highly disordered materials such as gas shale rocks, catalysts and adsorbents for gas storage and separation.
  • Connecting textural properties, adsorption behavior, catalytic reaction pathways, and gas-in-place estimates
