Looking back at the past few years, it is safe to say that the interest in developing novel materials is booming, and this process has resulted in a reliable base for the technological progress of society. This book presents the concept of the nanotailoring of sorption properties and introduces a new family of composite sorbents based on this concept: "salt in nanoporous matrix." The topics covered in the book include the requirements for optimal sorbents, tools for synthesis, sorption equilibrium of new materials with water, alcohols, ammonia, and carbon dioxide, and change of salt properties at the nanoscale. The text also discusses the potential application of these sorbents for the storage and transformation of low-temperature heat, gas drying, maintaining relative humidity in museums, and regeneration of heat and moisture in ventilation systems.
