Full Articles


The effect of an inert supercritical (SC) component of a gas mixture on the equilibrium adsorption conditions was investigated theoretically. The adsorption isotherms were calculated within the framework of the lattice-gas model taking into account lateral interactions of the nearest neighbors in the quasichemical approximation. The physical adsorption and chemisorption isotherms were calculated at specified chemical potentials of the main and supercritical components and at specified mole fractions of the supercritical component. The binary phase diagrams SC component-atoms of the solid characterizing the solubility conditions of SC molecules in the solids are considered.
