After a short introduction into interference microscopy and its potentials in monitoring transient concentration profiles in nanoporous materials, we concentrate on the special options of an analysis of these profiles close to the crystal surfaces. We shall in particular introduce a novel route of correlating the overall uptake, at a certain instant of time, with the current boundary concentration.

In this way, the significance of surface resistances to overall molecular uptake may be most vividly demonstrated. Considering a large variety of nanoporous host-guest systems, including methanol in zeolites ferrierite, methanol in MOF Manganese(II)-formate and methanol in SAPO STA-7, quite different patterns of surface resistivities may be observed. A generalized analysis is complicated by the fact that both the diffusivities and the surface permeabilities are found to notably depend on the actual concentration.

As a consequence, for one and the same system and over identical pressure steps, the relative contributions of diffusion and surface permeation to the overall process may be quite different for desorption and adsorption.
