New porous microstructure descriptors based on tortuosity and accessibility

IFP Energies nouvelles has developed new morphological descriptors for porous networks. The result of work carried out in partnership by two of its research divisions, they are hinged around the concepts of accessibility and tortuosity to describe paths within a material.

For xylene separation, hierarchy is not all bad

The three xylenea isomers are each employed in numerous growth market applications (polymers, plastifiers and resins). It is thus vital to improve the efficiency of the separation processes for these
