Fluids confined in porous media: An ideal gas in different matrices
(Laboratoire de Chimie, UMR 5182 CNRS, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, 46, Allée d'Italie, 69364 Lyon Cedex 07, France)
At present, a number of models are available describing the adsorption of a fluid in a random porous medium. In this paper, some exact and analytical results are presented. All the results are obtained for an ideal gas adsorbed in various porous matrices. It is shown that the calculations are not always trivial. In some cases of complicated matrices, it is impossible to obtain any analytical results even for an ideal gas.
