Surface Area Determination covers the proceedings of the International Symposium on Surface Area Determination. The title presents 35 papers that are organized into nine parts; the papers primarily emphasize the methods for surface area determination. The coverage of the book includes methods such as the BET method, low adsorption methods, and flow methods. The text also reviews papers about various types of surface, including heterogeneous surfaces, porous solids, clays, and small area surfaces. The book will be of great use to researchers and practitioners of disciplines that involve surface area determination, such as chemistry, chemical engineering, and chemical physics.
