A discovery by USF and KAUST chemists could be a breakthrough in developing new tools for cleaner air and energy production. Chemists at the University of South Florida and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology have discovered a more efficient, less expensive and reusable material for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and separation. The breakthrough could have implications for a new generation of clean-air technologies and offers new tools for confronting the world´s...

MOF Solar Sponge Absorbs Carbon Dioxide
2013-02-19 21:44:35

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A group of scientists at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia's national science agency, have created a "solar sponge" using a metal organic framework (MOF) that absorbs carbon dioxide, but releases it when exposed to sunlight. The journal Angewandte Chemie published a paper detailing MOF. The interaction is known as dynamic photo-switching. The capture-and-release method of dynamic...

Emissions from coal power stations could be drastically reduced by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight. In a study published today in Angewandte Chemie, Monash University and CSIRO scientists for the first time discovered a photosensitive metal organic framework (MOF) - a class of materials known for their exceptional capacity to store gases. This has created a powerful and cost-effective new tool to...

Maintaining Stable Energy Supply While Reducing Emission Of Carbon Dioxide At The Same Time
2013-02-12 12:14:44

Royal Astronomical Society Decisions about future energy challenges are too often hindered by propaganda, half-truths and a limited grasp of the science that informs the choice and use of hydrocarbon and other resources, according to delegates at the annual conference of the British Geophysical Association (BGA), to take place in the Geological Society, Burlington House in London on 14 and 15 February. For example, rather than being a quick fix that helps cut carbon dioxide emissions,...

Can The Sea Urchin Help Scientists Curb Global Warming?

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A discovery that was stumbled upon by happenstance could help solve the problem of global warming. According to a new report in the academic journal Catalysis Science & Technology, two researchers at Newcastle University in the U.K. found a nickel catalyst can be used to rapidly and cheaply capture carbon emissions. "We had set out to understand in detail the carbonic acid reaction — which is what happens when CO2...
