Summary of the “Symposium on Dynamic Sorption” and 3P-Workshop on Gas Adsorption
Two full days of professional input, more than 60 participants per day each and many stimulating conversations – this is how one could briefly sum up the “Symposium on Dynamic Sorption” and the workshop “New strategies for characterizing surfaces and pore structures”.
On 14th May 2019, the “Symposium on Dynamic Sorption” took place for the third time at Victor’s Residenz Hotel in Leipzig with 3P INSTRUMENTS as sponsor. The Leipzig Symposium was organized by our partner, the Institute for Non-Classical Chemistry (INC). We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks for the good cooperation! The focus of the symposium was on dynamic sorption processes, which were viewed from different perspectives. Lectures by our national and international guests highlighted the development stages from research to industry. In addition, an overview of the modelling of dynamic sorption processes was given. During the lecture discussions, in the breaks and during the poster session, the participants had the opportunity to exchange their experiences, especially about research and development of new measurement techniques. This year’s lectures, posters and pictures are available at www.dynamicsorption.com.
Dr. Jörg Hofmann of the Institute for Non-Classical Chemistry (INC) opened the Symposium.
Our 3P workshop on the characterization of porous materials by gas adsorption took place the following day at the same venue. Initially, Prof. Jürgen Keller gave an overview of the last 20 years of his scientific research. This was followed by lectures from our 3P INSTRUMENTS sorption experts Dr. Christian Reichenbach, Dr. Dietmar Klank and Dr. Andreas Möller. The focus was on the latest developments and trends in the characterization of porous and finely dispersed materials using gas sorption and complementary techniques. Current technical and theoretical approaches in the analysis of classical adsorbents as well as novel porous systems, from A for activated carbon to Z for zeolites, were discussed. Due to many inquiries, experiences with the use of hardware and software principles for micropore measurements and the possible influence of non-ideality on the results of gas adsorption instruments were also discussed. Our product specialists were particularly in demand during the breaks and poster sessions, during which individual questions and problems of the visitors were intensively discussed.

Finally, we would like to thank the speakers as well as the Victor’s Hotel for the successful event. Due to the overwhelming positive feedback we would like to announce that next year in May we will repeat these events – of course we will announce all further information on our homepage in time. Save the date: 12th and 13th May 2020 – we look forward to seeing you!
