  • Summarizes detailed strategies for designing high-performance CO2 capture materials with tailored pore architectures, materials morphologies, and surface chemistry
  • Presents a state-of-the-art coverage of a wide range of porous solids tailored for CO2 capture
  • Allows material researchers to understand relations between structural characteristics and CO2 capture performance
  • With multidisciplinary contributions from 7 experts in the fields of separation science, chemistry, polymer science, nano-engineering, and material science
  • Edited by Dr. An-Hui Lu and Dr. Sheng Dai with an integrated perspective into both materials design and CO2 capture application

This multi-authored book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in porous CO2 capture materials, including ionic liquid–derived carbonaceous adsorbents, porous carbons, metal-organic frameworks, porous aromatic frameworks, microporous organic polymers. It also reviews the sorption techniques such as cyclic uptake and desorption reactions and membrane separations. In each category, the design and fabrication, the comprehensive characterization, the evaluation of CO2 sorption/separation, and the sorption/degradation mechanism are highlighted. In addition, the advantages and remaining challenges as well as future perspectives for each porous material are covered.

This book is aimed at scientists and graduate students in such fields as separation, carbon, polymer, chemistry, material science and technology, who will use and appreciate this information source in their research. Other specialists may consult specific chapters to find the latest, authoritative reviews.

Dr. An-Hui Lu is a Professor at the State Key Laboratory of Fine Chemicals, School of Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Chemical, Environmental and Biological Science and Technology, Dalian University of Technology, China.

Dr. Sheng Dai is a Corporate Fellow and Group Leader in the Chemical Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee, USA.
