Highly reversible sorption of H2S and CO2 by an environmentally friendly Mg-based MOF

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mg-CUK-1, an ecologically friendly material synthesised in water is found to be a high-capacity, highly reversible adsorbent for acidic gases including H2S and CO2. Furthermore, Mg-CUK-1 is demonstrated to retain long-range crystallinity upon sorption cycling; its sorption performance is maintained over multiple cycles, even in the presence of high relative humidity (95%). Reversible H2S adsorption by Mg-CUK-1 is rare among MOFs studied for this purpose to date. The joint experimental and computational studies presented here show that Mg-CUK-1 is an effective solid adsorbent for applications in the field of acid gas capture, an application that is highly relevant for the purification of many industrial gas streams.
