About this book

This book is written in honor of Prof. Francisco Rodriguez-Reinoso, who has made significant contributions in the area of porous materials such as active carbons and graphenes. It details the preparation of porous materials, including carbonaceous, zeolitic, and siliceous materials, MOFs, aerogels, and xerogels, describing the characterization techniques and the interpretation of the results, and highlighting common errors that can occur during the process. This book subsequently presents the use of modeling based on thermodynamics to describe the materials. Lastly, it illustrates a number of current environmental protection applications in the context of both water and air.


About the authors

Juan Carlos Moreno-Piraján is a Full Professor of Chemistry at the Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia), where he is the Director of the Porous Solids and Calorimetry Research Group. He works in the areas of thermodynamics, porous materials, particularly nano-materials, special materials such as MOFs, mathematical modeling and design, construction, and application of calorimeters to the characterization of materials.
Liliana Giraldo is a Professor at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and Director of the Calorimetry Research Group. She works in porous materials, particularly with nanomaterials, special materials such as MOFs, modeling, design, and applying calorimeters to the characterization of materials and thermodynamic studies of interactions solute-solute, solute-solvent, and adsorbate-adsorbent. Dr. Fernando Gómez-Granados is an Associate Professor for analytical chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. His research interest is focused on the study of adsorption processes of different analytes with activated carbon prepared, characterized, and modified from carbon materials.
