What characteristics of a material can be determined by mercury porosimetry?

Mercury porosimetry is a very versatile technique for characterizing solids in both finely divided and monolithic forms. Please post any application hints, experiences, or questions you may have on using mercury porosimetry for the following determinations:






-Total porosity

-Pore volume (or area or number) distribution

-Interparticle void volume

-Fractal dimensions

Compressibility characteristics


Tortuosity & tortuosity factor

Pore throat-to-cavity size ratio

Particle size distribution

Pore network modeling
