A Cu(II)-MOF capable of fixing CO2 from air and showing high capacity H2 and CO2 adsorption

Author affiliations

Abstract

A porous Cu(II)-MOF shows an adsorption of 6.6 wt% of H2 at 77 K and 62 bar and a very high 60 wt% of CO2 at 298 K and 32 bar. When air is bubbled into a suspension of the activated MOF in the presence of different epoxides at room temperature, the CO2 in air is readily converted into the corresponding cyclic carbonates.
