CHAPTER 17

Capturing CO2 with Poly(Ionic Liquid)s

The development of new and the improvement of existing materials for designing new solvents/sorbents for CO2 separation is an urgent priority and significant goal to deal with climate change. Polymerizable ionic liquids or poly(ionic liquid)s (PILs) appear to be promising materials for this use. The aim of this chapter is to present the latest developments in PILs providing a broad overview of the subject. Furthermore, it will explore the subject from an application point of view, giving a comprehensive introduction to the main aspects of PILs including their synthesis routes, as well as the influence of the PIL backbone, anion type and modification on the CO2 sorption capacity.
