Adsorption Science & Technology

About this Journal

Aims and scope

Adsorption Science & Technology is a peer-reviewed, open access journal devoted to studies of adsorption and desorption phenomena, which publishes original research papers and critical review articles, with occasional special issues relating to particular topics and symposia.

Recent issues have included studies of the pore structure and surface chemistry of active carbons, discussions of the application of the Dubinin-Radushkevich equation, the effect of cation-exchange on the sorption properties of zeolites, studies of the isosteric and differential heats of gas adsorption on microporous active carbons, and investigations of high-area manganese oxides by nitrogen adsorption.

The editor particularly welcomes manuscripts concerning emerging techniques and applications such as multi-component gas-phase adsorption and liquid adsorption processes for green chemistry and biochemistry.

All papers and articles are subject to peer review before a decision is taken regarding their suitability and every effort is made to ensure their publication as quickly as possible.
