the home page of The Adsorption Research Group at Monash University,
The Adsorption Research Group was established in 1996 in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University
(Clayton Campus) with the goal of conducting research and development in adsorbent
synthesis and testing and adsorption processes specifically focusing on gas separations and storage.
Over the last 11 years we have developed a considerable experimental and theoretical infrastructure
which, together with a solid knowledge base in adsorption principles, has allowed us to investigate a wide variety of issues related to adsorbents and adsorption processes. Lab scale and pilot scale pressure and
vacuum swing processes have been constructed as well as auxiliary equipment
procured to measure kinetics and equilibrium of gaseous-adsorbent systems. A variety of adsorbent
synthesis and characterization
equipment is in place to permit the development and analysis of novel adsorbents
as well as help in plant troubleshooting. Powerful
simulation tools have been developed to design and evaluate new
adsorbents and adsorption processes.
