Standard Practice for Calculation of Pore Size Distributions of Catalysts from Nitrogen Desorption Isotherms
1.1 This practice covers the calculation of pore size distributions for catalysts and catalyst carriers from nitrogen desorption isotherms. The computational procedure is particularly useful for determining how the pore volume is distributed in catalyst samples containing pores whose sizes range from approximately 15 to 1000 Å (10 Å-1 nm) in radius. It should be used with caution when applied to isotherms for samples containing pores both within this size range and pores larger than 1000 Å in radius. In such instances the isotherms rise steeply near / Po = 1 and the total pore volume cannot be well defined. The calculations should be begun at a point on the isotherm near saturation preferably in a region near / Po = 0.99, establishing an upper limit on the pore size distribution range to be studied. Simplifications are necessary regarding pore shape. A cylindrical pore model is assumed, and the method treats the pores as non-intersecting, open-ended capillaries which are assumed to function independently of each other during the adsorption or desorption of nitrogen.
