Description

We develop and study new materials for carbon dioxide capture, storage, and utilization. We use diffraction and neutron scattering techniques to study structures and dynamics of CO2 after absorption in order to elucidate location and dynamics of CO2 in materials necessary for advancing the carbon capture technology. Detailed structural information will be extracted. This information provides insight into the chemistry and physics of CO2 adsorption/absorption, which is then used to identify the most promising avenues for the synthesis of new materials with the improved CO2 capture and conversion performance.

key words
Carbon dioxide absorption; Carbon dioxide storage; Carbon dioxide conversion; Neutron scattering; X-ray diffraction; amines; porous materials
