Professor Jeffrey R. Long and coworkers have evaluated a series of zeolites for their carbon capture properties using a new high-throughput gas adsorption instrument which can simultaneously measure 28 samples.
They identified one zeolite in particular which had superior CO2 adsorption properties and CO2/N2 selectivity compared to Mg2(dobdc) ((dobdc4- = 1,4-dioxido-2,5-benzenedicarboxylate) – one of the best currently available adsorbent materials.
