Jacek Jagiello Ph.D.
Dr. Jagiello spent most of his professional life working on adsorption phenomena and studying adsorption properties of non-porous and porous materials - with special interest in understanding and characterization of activated carbons.From 1988 to1990 he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in CNRS (Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique) Mulhouse, France where he studied Inverse Gas Chromatography working in the group of Dr. Papirer. His second Postdoctoral position was with Prof. Schwarz at Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York (1990-1996) where he worked on hydrogen and methane storage on activated carbons. In 1996, Dr. Jagiello moved from academic to industrial research when he joined the Carbon Research Group at the Charleston Technical Center of Westvaco Corporation (Charleston, South Carolina). His research projects were primarily related to the development of methods for characterization of activated carbons and to the pore structure-based modeling of carbon performance for specific applications. Dr. Jagiello has authored and co-authored more than 80 scientific publications including two book chapters, more than 20 presentations at international conferences and four U.S. patents. He joined Quantachrome in 2002.
Dr Jagiello not only specializes in supplying scientific application support to Quantachrome's customers - especially in the fields of carbons and hydrogen sorption - but also manages our Customer Training program.
Areas of Special Interest & Activities
Dr Jagiello undertakes fundamental and applied studies of adsorbents and adsorption processes focusing on both adsorption thermodynamics and modeling of adsorption processes. Results from these studies are used for characterization of solid surfaces and development of new characterization methods aimed at surface energy heterogeneity, pore structure of porous solids and physicochemical properties of materials and their relationship to specific applications.
Dr Jagiello is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the International Adsorption Society and the American Carbon Society. He was an invited speaker at the prestigious inaugural CESEP'05 conference, the 1st International Conference on Carbon for Energy Storage and Environmental Protection, held in Orléans, France, October 2005.
EducationHe received his Doctorate in Chemistry at M. Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland (1984) working under supervision of Prof. W. Rudzinski on the thermodynamics of physical adsorption on heterogeneous surfaces.
