Menisci interactions can strongly affect the development of adsorption processes in mesoporous materials. Phenomena such as delayed and advanced adsorption represent outright manifestations of these interactions then leading to deceptive determinations of the pore-size distribution. At present, a characterization study involving simulated porous networks with qualities similar to those owned by real materials and in which the above processes can occur is still lacking. A Monte Carlo procedure is used to evaluate the extent of delayed and advanced adsorption in porous structures of assorted morphologies. This treatment allows a clear detection of the types of mesoporous structures that can experience the incidence of delayed and advanced adsorption.
