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.
This year, the Adsorption Summer School will run directly before the 6th Annual UK Porous Materials Conference, which is taking place in Sheffield. We are offering a £50 discount for registered UK PorMat delegates. Visit the conference website for further details.
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 summer school will take place in:
The James Weir Building
University of Strathclyde
75 Montrose Street
The sessions will be held on Level 4 of the James Weir Building.
The University of Strathclyde is located in Glasgow city centre and is easily accessible by public transport. Glasgow Central station is a 15 minute walk from the University and Glasgow Queen Street Station is only 5 minutes away.

Due to generous support from CCP5 (https://www.ccp5.ac.uk/) a limited number of bursaries have been awarded to PhD students undertaking their degree in a UK institution. These bursaries have been used towards reducing students' registration fee for the event. All recipients of CCP5 student bursaries are expected to join CCP5 and acknowledge funding in any communications/publications arising from their attendance at the Adsorption Summer School
