Water in porous carbons

  title={Water in porous carbons},
  author={John K. Brennan and Teresa J Bandosz and Kendall T. Thomson and Keith E Gubbins},
We present an overview of progress in understanding the behavior of water in porous carbons at the molecular level. We survey experimental investigations, semi-empirical approaches, and simulation studies. Experimental work faces a number of challenges: the determination of the distribution of carbon microcrystal sizes, the densities and species of surface groups, the topological nature of the connected pore structure, and pore size distributions. The lack of experimental characterization… CONTINUE READING
