The Specialized Adsorption Group of the Spanish Chemistry and Physics Royal Societies (RSEQ and RSEF), at its General Assembly held in Gijón in 2018, took the decision of organising the XLII Iberian Adsorption Meeting (42RIA) in Valencia. Unfortunately, the meeting initially scheduled for September 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic. Now, the health situation has notably improved in Europe and, thus, we have retaken the organization of the XLII Iberian Adsorption Meeting.

For this reason, we are pleased to welcome the scientific community interested in Adsorption and related topics, whom we encourage to participate in this Meeting that will be held in Valencia from September 13 to 16, 2022. The 42RIA Meeting will take place on the “Salón de Actos de la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Agronómica y del Medio Natural” (ETSIAMN, Building 3P) of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) Campus and speakers from both Spain and Portugal, as well as from other nationalities, will attend it.

In this multidisciplinary forum, all aspects related to adsorption will be discussed, from the fundamentals to the final applications, emphasizing its technological, energy and environmental implications. Thus, communications dealing with the following topics fit within the scope of the meeting:


  • Preparation
  • Characterization
  • Modelling


  • Gas Phase Adsorption
  • Liquid Phase Adsorption
  • Separation ProcessesCatalytic Processes
  • Energy production and Storage Processes
  • Contaminant Removal
  • Other Applications
