Fundamentals of Adsorption Conference – May 2019

The International Conference on Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA) is the largest and most important conference in the field of liquid and gas adsorption attended by the world leading scientists and engineers from academia, government, and industry.  The FOA series of conferences originated in 1983 and a conference in the series has been held every three years since that time. The conference is held under the auspices of the International Adsorption Society (IAS) and usually takes place in the US, Asian/Pacific area, and Europe, on a rotation basis. For the first time ever, the conference will take place in the Southern Hemisphere – in Cairns, Australia.

Featuring over 100 speakers, more than 20 sessions and daily poster sessions, the conference will cover the key themes of:

• Fundamentals of Adsorbents – Synthesis, Characterisation and Properties
• Molecular Modelling of Adsorption and Adsorbent-adsorbate systems
• Physical Chemistry of adsorbate-adsorbent interactions, multicomponent adsorption, diffusion
• Metal-organic frameworks, zeolites, carbons, silicas, nanomaterials, and other micro and mesoporous materials
• Gas, liquid, and bio-sorption
• Process technologies for adsorption-based separation: cyclic adsorption, simulated moving bed, chromatography
• Industrial application areas of gas separation, biochemical separation, fluid storage,
• New apparatus for adsorption measurement and characterisation

Professor Eric May and Dr Kevin Li of Gas Capture Technologies will both be presenting at this conference – held from May 26th to 31st. For more information & to sign up please see
