Scientists develop nano-based carbon dioxide capture technology

05/29/2013 | Chemical & Engineering News

Researchers at Queensland University of Technology in Australia have studied the affinity of carbon dioxide for boron-nitride nanosheets and nanotubes, learning that electrons allow carbon dioxide to form a strong, selective bond. When injected electrons are removed from the nanosheets, carbon dioxide releases. The discovery could help improve carbon-capture technologies, according to this article.
