Hierarchically porous materials via assembly of nitrogen-rich polymer nanoparticles for efficient and selective CO2 capture

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hierarchically porous materials were developed using a two-step procedure by (1) the stacking of high-nitrogen-content polymer nanoparticles to produce inter-particle mesoporous space and (2) chemical activation to create intra-particle micropores. The materials exhibited efficient CO2 uptake and enhanced CO2/N2 selectivity, which is 40% higher than that of the control material without a hierarchical structure.
