Abstract: The adsorption of methane in AFS molecular sieves was investigated by a grand canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulation. The results were compared with the methane adsorption in IRMOF-6 materials obtained by Dvren et al. (Langmuir, 2004, 20: 2683). It was indicated that the adsorbed amouts in AFS were very striking. AFS molecular sieve is relative ideal adsorbent in the adsorbs storage natural gas system at the medium and low pressure. The Dubinin-Astakhov (DA) method was employed to analyze the physical factors that affect the storage of methane.
