Molecular structures

Chemical & Process EngineeringAdsorption Summer School, 18 - 21 June 2019

This 4-day course provides training on adsorption fundamentals, from molecular mechanisms up to industrial processes. It is aimed at industry professionals, 1st-year PhD candidates, or anyone who wishes to improve their knowledge of adsorption-based separation and storage processes.

Programme:

Adsorption Summer School

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

 

  • Measure adsorption isotherms using state-of-the-art laboratory equipment
  • Interpret adsorption isotherm data using pure component adsorption models
  • Calculate surface areas, pore volumes, and heats of adsorption from datasets
  • Predict multi-component adsorption using the Ideal Adsorbed Solution Theory (IAST)
  • Describe adsorption separation processes in terms of underlying equation
  • Predict macroscopic adsorption behaviour using molecular simulations

The course features an even balance between lectures, problem-solving tutorials, molecular simulation labs and experimental lab sessions, using examples relevant to industrial adsorption applications. Participants will be able to supply an adsorbent sample in advance to be analysed by our expert team.

 

The 2019 schedule is available below:

Student Bursaries:

Due to generous support from CCP5 a limited number of bursaries, worth £500 each, are available for PhD students undertaking their degree in a UK institution. These will be awarded on a competitive basis.

To apply, please submit a 1-page (A4, standard margins, font size 11) statement explaining how you expect the summer school to help you develop new skills of relevance to your PhD studies. Particular emphasis should be placed on the modelling component of the summer school, as the bursaries are offered by CCP5.

Statements should be submitted by email to chemeng-events@strath.ac.uk with the subject line "Student Bursary". The application deadline for a student bursary is 31st of May 2019 at 5pm UK time. All recipients of CCP5 student bursaries are expected to join CCP5. Further instructions will be provided upon receipt of the bursary.

Organisers:

The course is run by Dr Ashleigh Fletcher, Dr Miguel Jorge and Dr Iain Burns, who are leading research into the next generation of adsorbent materials.
