The molecular level picture of micropore filling mechanism in carbon micropores was summarized and the necessity of the structural study on molecules confined in carbon micropores with in situ X-ray diffraction is described. The detailed explanation of in situ X-ray diffraction technique for adsorption studies is given. The effectiveness of the in situ X-ray diffraction for elucidation of structures of molecules filled in micropore is shown for CCl 4 , water, and alcohol molecules. In situ X-ray diffraction studies shows the presence of organized structure inherent to an adsorbate molecule, although only adsorption measurement cannot distinguish the molecular state different from the bulk liquid.
