New insights into carbon dioxide interactions with benzimidazole-linked polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

A synergistic experimental and theoretical study (DFT) highlights the impact of material design at the molecular and electronic levels on the binding affinity and interaction sites of CO2 with benzimidazole-linked polymers (BILPs); CO2 is stabilized by benzimidazole units through Lewis acid–base (N⋯CO2) and aryl C–H⋯O[double bond, length as m-dash]C[double bond, length as m-dash]O interactions.
