Mesoporous SBA-15 has been successfully synthesized at various concentration of Pluronic 123 surfactant (7mM, 50 mM, 54 mM, 60 mM and 66 mM) and the effect of these various concentrations on the N2 adsorption capacity has been investigated. The adsorption analysis was conducted using Dubinin-Astakhov isotherm model for multilayer adsorption phenomenon. It was found that etryat low concentration of Pluronic 123, the system exhibits type I adsorption isotherm while at high concentration, the system exhibits type IV adsorption with H1 hysteresis curve which indicates the existence of pores with cylindrical geometry, relatively uniform pore size and possibility of pore network effects. It also was found that, by using D-A isotherm model fitting, at 60 mM concentration of Pluronic 123, SBA-15 has the highest adsorption capacity which stands at 421 cm3/gram.
