A scalable metal-organic framework as a durable physisorbent for carbon dioxide capture

A hydrophobic CO2 physisorbent Most materials for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture of fossil fuel combustion, such as amines, rely on strong chemisorption interactions that are highly selective but can incur a large energy penalty to release CO2. Lin et al. show that a zinc-based metal organic framework material can physisorb CO2 and incurs a lower regeneration […]
