Abstract

In this Letter, new results of calorimetric study on benzene adsorption from the gaseous phase are presented. According to some of recently published reports, the energy of solid–fluid, interactions increases with the rise in carbon nanotube curvature during adsorption. The recent considerations [Chem. Phys. Lett. 619 (2015) 219] on thermodynamics of adsorption from aqueous solutions on a series of carbon nanotubes have confirmed this observation. Although comparable ‘energy–tube diameter’ relations for benzene adsorption from the solution and from the gaseous phase are observed, remarkable differences between the mechanisms of the both processes caused by surface heterogeneity are noticeable.
