Cost-effective synthesis of amine-tethered porous materials for carbon capture. Academic Article uri icon


  • A truly cost-effective strategy for the synthesis of amine-tethered porous polymer networks (PPNs) has been developed. A network containing diethylenetriamine (PPN-125-DETA) exhibits a high working capacity comparable to current state-of-art technology (30% monoethanolamine solutions), yet it requires only one third as much energy for regeneration. It has also been demonstrated to retain over 90% capacity after 50 adsorption-desorption cycles of CO2 in a temperature-swing adsorption process. The results suggest that PPN-125-DETA is a very promising new material for carbon capture from flue gas streams.
