Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Using Open Frameworks

Tech ID: 19337 / UC Case 2009-676-0


This technology demonstrates the exceptional performance of open framework materials possessing accessible metal ions as highly selective carbon dioxide capture and storage networks. They also demonstrate much lower energy requirements to regenerate compared to amine solutions and have a larger uptake capacity than zeolites. Because of the flexibility in the metal ions that can be used, these materials can be tailored to work with any acid gas separation and purification as well as for carbon dioxide capture and storage.
