The seventh overseas Symposium at the Characterization of Porous Solids (COPS-VII) was once held within the Congress Centre in Aix-en-Provence among the 25th-28th could 2005. The symposium lined contemporary result of basic and utilized study at the characterization of porous solids. Papers in relation to characterization tools comparable to gasoline adsorption and liquid porosimetry, X-ray suggestions and microscopic measurements in addition to the corresponding molecular modelling tools got. those characterization tools have been proven to be utilized to all kinds of porous solids equivalent to clays, carbons, ordered mesoporous fabrics, porous glasses, oxides, zeolites and steel natural frameworks.

Respondingtoourcallforpapers,wereceived38submissionfromavarietyof researchareas.EachpaperwasreviewedbythreeProgramCommitteemembers. on the grounds that we have been aiming at an interdisciplinary convention overlaying quite a lot of issues touching on large-scale wisdom assets (LKR), every one paper was once assigned a reviewer from a subject region outdoors the most thrust of the paper. This reviewer used to be requested to evaluate no matter if the authors defined the moti- tion and value in their paintings in a understandable demeanour even for readers in different study parts.
