PRINCIPLE : Regenerated sample exposed to Nitrogen gas at liquid Nitrogen temperature adsorbs Nitrogen and forms a single molecular layer of Nitrogen on the surface of the powder. Surface area can be calculated by measuring the volume of Nitrogen adsorbed using a modified single point BET equation based on theory by Brunauer, Emmet and Teller.

OPERATION : Sample is first regenerated to remove the adsorbed gases & moisture from the surface. Mixture of Helium gas (70%) and Nitrogen gas (30%) is passed over the sample in the tube. Sample is then dipped in liquid Nitrogen. Sample powder adsorbs Nitrogen on the surface at liquid Nitrogen temperature. After confirming that adsorption is over, sample tube is dipped in the water. This leads to desorption of adsorbed Nitrogen from sample, which is quantitatively determined using a Thermal Conductivity Detector coupled with an in-built Electronic Integrator.
