International Conference on Fundamentals of Adsorption, FOA14

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project provides partial support for junior U.S. participants to participate in the 14th International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA14) which takes place on May 22-27, 2022, in Broomfield, Colorado. The funds are used to partially defray the registration fees for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior tenure-track faculty members in US educational institutions, as well as junior researchers from US governmental laboratories who will have an oral or poster presentation at the meeting.The FOA series of conferences is an international conference in the field of adsorption. Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or dissolved solid to the surface of a solid. Adsorption occurs in numerous natural, physical, biological and chemical systems and is widely used in industrial applications such as heterogeneous catalysts, heat transfer for heating or air conditioning, water purification and other processes. The FOA conferences are held triennially, attended by researchers from all over the world, and separation science via adsorption is a major technical focus. Many of the attendees are chemical engineers but there are also significant numbers of chemists, physicists, materials scientists and members of other disciplines, with the level of industrial participation high. Thus, the conference provides an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas and information between scientists and engineers in academia and industrial practitioners in the field. A hallmark of the conference is its comprehensive coverage of the spectrum of fundamental research and applications of adsorption, ranging from molecular modeling and simulation of fluids adsorbed in porous materials to the design of pressure swing adsorption systems for industrial gas separation processes.The Conference attracts researchers working in various very distant fields: chemical engineers, materials scientists, chemists, physicists, and applied mathematicians. Those researchers come from academia, industry and governmental labs. Thus, the Conference provides an interdisciplinary panel for discussions in the area of adsorption. Additional broader impact is achieved by participation of graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty members and researchers, which is encouraged by this grant.
