Abstract

Here, we investigate effects of the size of pores in porous alumina powders on the broadening of the oxygen gas absorption line. The line broadening is caused by collisions of oxygen molecules with the pore walls and is extracted using gas in scattering media absorption spectroscopy (GASMAS), while the average pore size is determined using the gas adsorption technique. The average pore size of the samples studied lies within the range 10–40 nm. In this range, the contribution of the wall collision broadening is found to be approximately inversely related to the average pore diameter. Furthermore, the confined oxygen gas absorbance measured by GASMAS is found to be linearly correlated with the effective porosity evaluated by the saturation method.
