### Abstract

The exact statistical mechanical solution to the problem of an equilibrium inhomogeneous classical one-dimensional mixture of hard rods is presented. From the solution, thermodynamic properties, density profiles, and correlation functions of hard rod fluids confined to small regions (micropores) can be calculated. The theory is applied to investigate microstructure, pore pressures, and pore adsorption selectivity of micropores in equilibrium with binary hard rod mixtures. A prescription is suggested for generalizing the one-dimensional results to higher dimensions.
