Abstract A simple method, based on Monte Carlo integration, is presented to derive pore size and its volume distribution for porous solids having known configuration of solid atoms. Because pores do not have any particular shape, it is important that we define the pore size in an unambiguous manner and the volume associated with each pore size. The void volume that we adopt is the one that is accessible to the center of mass of the probe particle. We test this new method with porous solids having well defined pores such as graphitic slit pores and carbon nanotubes, and then apply it to obtain the pore volume distribution of complex solids such as disordered solids, rectangular pores, defected graphitic pores, metal organic framework and zeolite.
