New Carbon Capture Technique Is Highly Energy Efficient

from Bits of Science

Ask Texas A&M University chemist Hong-Cai "Joe" Zhou to describe his research in simple terms, and more often than not, he'll draw on a favorite analogy from childhood: playing with LEGOs. But if you're tempted to view his work as child's play, you might want to think again. The building blocks he and his group specialize in actually are a recently developed, increasingly versatile class of materials known as metal-organic frameworks (MOF). An emerging technology in the scientific community, MOF are porous crystalline polymers made up of metal ions or metal-containing components and organic ligands. Zhou's group, in collaboration with Hae-Kwon Jeong and Perla B. Balbuena in the Department of Chemical Engineering, assembles MOF materials with profound potential for cleaner energy across the globe. more
