Contents

In this introductory lecture I will give an overview on the general concepts and questions that concern porous media science. In detail, I will cover the following points:

What are porous materials?

  • Definition
  • length-scales
  • fundamental questions

Adsorption

  • Thermodynamics
  • confinement effects
  • criticality

Transport

  • Molecular concepts of transport, statistical mechanics
  • Coupling of thermodynamics and transport in nano-porous media
  • from pore to pore-network to continuum scale
  • Typical continuum descriptions (Darcy, Brinkmann, ...)
