Aligned Carbon Nanotubes as Porous Materials for Selective Carbon-Dioxide Adsorption and Desorption: Effect of Pressure and Charge

PI: Prof. Jayant K. Singh 


Carbon pipe model

The escalating level of atmospheric carbon dioxide is one of the major pressing needs for efficient deployment of carbon capture and storage at the major sources for reducing CO2 emission. This project aims to address carbon capture and storage aspects using novel techniques from a molecular perspective. The main goal of this research project is to gain a solid theoretical understanding of the adsorption/desorption behavior of CO2 in the presence of CH4, N2, SO2, NO2, H2S and H2O in 3D vertically aligned carbon structures with charged/uncharged or/and functional groups under low and high pressure (0 to 30 bar). This project is in collaboration with an experimental group in Germany.
