Carbon dioxide—a themed issue
Guest Editor Frederik Krebs introduces this themed issue on Carbon Dioxide in this editorial.
Advances in high permeability polymeric membrane materials for CO2 separations
Highly permeable CO2-selective polymeric membranes have the potential to capture CO2 from coal-fired power station flue gas.
Air as the renewable carbon source of the future: an overview of CO2 capture from the atmosphere
The paper reviews the status of anthropogenic CO2 capture directly from the air.
Chemical looping processes for CO2 capture and carbonaceous fuel conversion – prospect and opportunity
Chemical looping technology shows promise for a clean, efficient conversion of carbonaceous fuels to electricity, hydrogen, liquid fuels and chemicals.
Worldwide innovations in the development of carbon capture technologies and the utilization of CO2
The paper reviews the status of CO2-capture, transport and utilization, with respect to energy efficiency, technical feasibility, costs and environmental effects.
CO2-triggered switchable solvents, surfactants, and other materials
CO2 gas, at 1 atm, can trigger the switching of materials from one form to another, facilitating processing and separations.
reduction of CO2 with H2O on various titanium oxide photocatalysts
The specific features of the photocatalytic reduction of CO2 with H2O on various types of active titanium oxide catalysts under UV-light irradiation conditions are reviewed.
Superior CO2 uptake of N-doped activated carbon through hydrogen-bonding interaction
The introduction of N into a carbon surface greatly facilitates the hydrogen-bonding interactions between –C–H on the carbon surface and CO2 molecules.
Efficient CO2 sorbents based on
silica foam with ultra-large mesopores
High efficiency CO2 sorbents based on a cost-effective silica foam with ultra-large mesopores have been developed.
The cross-scale science of CO2 capture and storage: from pore scale to regional scale
A cross-scale approach (pore, reservoir, site, and region scales) to demonstrate basic scientific research supporting CO2 capture and storage is described.
combustion calcium looping process with a highly stable sorbent activity by recarbonation
This sorbent regeneration technique for post-combustion Ca-looping CO2 capture systems can drastically reduce the consumption of limestone in the plant.
extraction from seawater using bipolar membrane electrodialysis
We efficiently extract CO2 gas from the dissolved inorganic carbon of seawater using a new technique employing bipolar membrane electrodialysis.
Catalytic interconversion between hydrogen and formic acid at ambient temperature and pressure
A [C,N] cyclometalated water-soluble iridium aqua complex acts as an efficient catalyst for interconversion between H2 and HCOOH at ambient temperature and pressure in water by controlling pH.
CO2 capture and conversion using Mg-MOF-74 prepared by a sonochemical method
Sonochemically synthesized Mg-MOF-74 shows high CO2 adsorption capacity and excellent catalytic performance in cycloaddition of CO2 to styrene oxide under relatively mild reaction conditions.
