Abstract

Mesopore materials derived from kaolinite and metakaolinite were prepared by using hydrothermal reaction to clarify the influence of porous properties on their water vapor adsorption-desorption properties. The amount of water vapor adsorbed and desorbed decreased with increasing mesopore volume of the materials, which disagreed with estimation obtained using the Kelvin equation. An increase in the binding energy between water vapor and the materials led to an improvement in the water vapor adsorption-desorption properties of materials.
