It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 13th International Conference on Fundamentals of Adsorption (#13FOA), the premier International Conference on Adsorption Science and Technology, organised by the International Adsorption Society.
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.
Thus, the conference is an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas and information between scientists, engineers in academia and industrial practitioners.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Cairns.
The University of Melbourne
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
