Abstract

Quenched solid density functional theory (QSDFT) model for characterization of mesoporous carbons using nitrogen adsorption is extended to cylindrical and spherical pore geometries. The kernels of theoretical isotherms in the range from 0.4 to 50 nm are constructed accounting for different possible variations of the pore shapes in micropore and mesopore regions. The results of QSDFT method are illustrated with experimental data on adsorption on novel CMK-3 and 3DOm carbons. The proposed method is recommended for pore size distribution calculations for micro-mesoporous carbons obtained through various templating mechanisms.
