Project Title

Fundamental Chemisty & Physics of CO2 Adsorption from Air


Project Description

This project is based on the supported amine adsorbents to extract CO2 from air. We are going to fundamentally understand the process of COadsorption/desorption at the molecular level by studying ulta-low pressure CO2- water-solid (metal oxides) interactions.
