Project Description

This project will synthesize and characterize ultra-high surface area metal organic framework (MOF) materials for CO2 adsorption. This 3-yr research effort will consist of synthesizing MOFs with organic linkers as well as nitrogen-containing pyrazine linkers and evaluate them based on CO2 adsorption properties, framework structure and composition (such as metal content and elemental analysis), surface area, pore size, and thermal stability. The evaluation methods will include X-ray crystallography, powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), thermogravimetric analysis, infrared spectroscopy, and other advanced techniques. The downselected CO2 adsorption material from this research will be used for CO2 capture and sequestration application.

Project Benefits

This research work could guide rational design/synthesis strategies towards producing advance sorbents for CO2 capture. The work done in this project could improve the cost-effectiveness, cost competitiveness, and advance the science of novel technologies for fossil based power systems.
