• Computational studies of methane adsorption in nanoporous carbon 

    Ortiz, Lindsey (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    In this thesis we have completed computational studies using Grand Canonical Monte Carlo on the adsorption of methane into a graphitic nanoporous adsorbent with slit-shaped pores. Simulations were done at a temperature of ...
  • Investigations of novel hydrogen adsorption phenomena 

    Olsen, Raina J. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    For convenient use of energy, it is common to use chemical potential energy stored in a fuel. To reduce pollution, a desirable fuel is molecular hydrogen, whose only byproduct is water vapor. However, there are still many ...
  • Properties of low-dimensional systems 

    Lapilli, Cintia Mariela, 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    In this work we study the equilibrium properties of systems in two-dimensions, and the effects that discrete symmetry, space dimensionality, character of the interaction and number of internal degrees of freedom have on ...
  • The reversibility of the adsorption of methane-methyl mercaptan mixtures in nanoporous carbon 

    Golebiowska, Monika R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    Methane is the main constituent of natural gas (NG). As fuel for vehicular applications NG requires sorbents that allow efficient, reversible and safe storage at room temperature and moderate pressure. To enable easy human ...
  • Substrate structure and dynamics effect on sorption properties: Theory and experiment 

    Connolly, Matthew James, 1986- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    Adsorbent materials such as activated carbon and metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have received significant attention for their potential for storage of hydrogen and natural gas. Typically the adsorbent is assumed to consist ...
