Inverse gas chromatography has been used to evaluate the adsorption parameters (ΔH, ΔS and ΔG) of some probes, each representing a class of organic compounds (n-hexane, cyclohexane and benzene) on some adsorbents (activated alumina, and molecular sieves 3A and 5A). It was found that benzene exhibits more negative ΔH than for n-hexane and cyclohexane on molecular sieves 3A and 5A and alumina. Also, interactions of the benzene with molecular sieves 3A and 5A were found to be stronger than that on alumina. On the contrary, interactions of the hexane with alumina were found to be stronger than those on molecular sieves 3A and 5A. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
