This project has an objective to contribute to the scientific basis of how task-specific activated carbons can be implemented in CO2 capture in post-combustion capture of CO2 and to test such separation on lab and industrial scales. Adsorption-driven capture of CO2 has the potential to reduce the cost for carbon capture and storage (CCS).

Understanding how the self-assembly of nanoparticles proceeds

The discovery that the assembly of synthetic nanocrystals proceeds through a two-step process where nanoparticles first agglomerate into an intermediate disordered state that then rapidly transforms into large ordered arrays is similar to what has been recently observed for many synthetic crystal and biominerals.

First material to be woven at nano level

For the first time, scientists have been able to weave a material at molecular level. The research is led by University of California Berkeley, in cooperation with Stockholm University. The new material is presented in the scientific journal Science.

New crystal captures carbon from humid gas

A new material with micropores might be a way to fight climate change. Scientists have created crystals that capture carbon dioxide much more efficiently than previously known materials, even in the presence of water. The research was recently published in a report in the scientific journal Science.
