Emerging membrane materials for carbon capture and separation

The research article 'A Review on Emerging Organic-containing Microporous Material Membranes for Carbon Capture and Separation' has been published in Elsevier's Chemical Engineering Journal.


Membrane technology has gained great attention as one of the promising strategies for carbon capture and separation. Intended for such application, membrane fabrication from various materials has been attempted. While gas separation membranes based on dense polymeric materials have been long developed, there is a growing interest to use porous materials as the membrane material. This review then focuses on emerging porous materials to be used for the fabrication of membranes that are designed for CO2 separation. Criteria for selecting microporous material are first discussed, including physical and chemical properties, and parameters in membrane fabrication. Membranes based on emerging porous materials, such as metal-organic frameworks, porous organic frameworks, and microporous polymers, are then reviewed. Finally, special attention is given to recent advances, challenges, and perspectives in the development of such membranes for carbon capture and separation.
