We have measured 21 adsorption isotherms for argon on single-walled carbon nanotubes produced by laser ablation. We explored temperatures between 40 and 153 K to obtain the coverage dependence of the isosteric heat of adsorption for films in the first and second layers. Our data are compared to results obtained in computer simulation studies and to data(More)
We present the combined results of a computer simulation and adsorption isotherm investigation of CF4 films on purified HiPco nanotubes. The experimental measurements found two substeps in the adsorption data. The specific surface area of the sample and the coverage dependence of the isosteric heat of adsorption of the films were determined from the(More)
Using volumetric adsorption techniques, we have measured the adsorption of argon on Cu3(BTC)2(H2O)3, (BTC = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylate), a microporous metal-organic framework structure, at temperatures between 66 and 143 K. In addition to the experiments, we have used Grand Canonical Monte Carlo simulations to calculate the adsorption isotherm of argon at(More)
We present results for the isothermal adsorption kinetics of methane, hydrogen, and tetrafluoromethane on closed-ended single-walled carbon nanotubes. In these experiments, we monitor the pressure decrease as a function of time as equilibrium is approached, after a dose of gas is added to the cell containing the nanotubes. The measurements were performed at(More)
The formation of alkali-metal hydroxide layers within lamellar perovskites has been accomplished by a two-step topochemical reaction strategy. Reductive intercalation of ALaNb2O7 with alkali metal (A = K, Rb) and RbCa2Nb3O10 with Rb leads to A2LaNb2O7 and Rb2Ca2Nb3O10, respectively. Oxidative intercalation with stoichiometric amounts of water vapor,(More)
We have measured adsorption of xenon on purified HiPco single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) for coverages in the first layer. We compare the results on this substrate to those our group obtained in earlier measurements on lower purity arc-discharge produced nanotubes. To obtain an estimate for the binding energy of Xe, we measured five low-coverage(More)
