SYNTHESIS of new porous materials (eg. zeolites, aluminophosphates, mesoporous silicas, metal-organic framework materials (MOFs), zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs)) as adsorbents with targeted structural properties for efficient and/or selective gas capture.
The development of new CHARACTERIZATION approaches integrated with sorption studies and MODELLING to understand the structure-property-activity relationship for new solutions of gas capture and separation.
CURRENT EMPHASES - TESTING OF MATERIALS for:
- selective capture and conversion of CO2 from flue gasses,
- direct CO2 capture from the air (DAC),
- detection of in-door CO2,
- gas sorption for bioaplications (NO, CO), etc.
