Researchers have developed a new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide molecules and convert them into useful organic products.
The researchers, including those from Kyoto University, Japan, said that the new material has high affinity towards carbon dioxide molecules, and can rapidly and effectively convert it into useful organic materials.
The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, noted that a possible way to
However, the researchers said that currently available methods were highly energy-intensive to do so.
The new material developed by the researchers is a porous polymer ̵
The study noted that the material has an organic component with a propeller-
The results of this change are as follows:
The researchers said that the PCP is also recyclable with the efficiency of the trapping process not even after 10 reaction cycles.
"One of the greenest approaches to carbon capture is to recycle the carbon dioxide into high-value chemicals, such as cyclic carbonates, which can be used in petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, "said c o-author of the study, Susumu Kitagawa, Kyoto University.
