The Autosorb-iQ is a gas adsorption analyzer providing flexible and versatile surface area (BET) and pore size analysis for microporus, mesoporous and macroporous material. The iQ is also a chemisorption unit, which can use hydrogen, carbon dioxide for various heterogeneous catalysts and support materials; transition and precious metals, dissociative and nondissociative type adsorption, acidic and basic sites of oxides. This Autosorb is also equipped with CO2 physisorption dewar. The tool has multi-gas adsorption capability, N2, CO2, Kr & Ar. Pore size range suitable for this tool is 0.7 -700 nm.
