Variable pressure solid-state NMR methods to study gas-surface interactions in nanoporous sorbent materials for industrial post/precombustion CO2 capture

On going
About
This project aims at developing high-resolution in-situ solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (ssNMR) methods, adapted to variable pressure measurements, to gain an atomic-level understanding of the surface interactions between nanoporous inorganic-organic hybrid sorbent materials and gas mixtures mimicking industrial flue gas streams relevant in low- and high-pressure (postand pre-combustion) CO2 capture. We focus on the elucidation of CO2 adducts formed at CO2 partial pressures in post- (<0.5 bar) and pre-combustion (~10-50 bar) processes using isotopically-labelled 13CO2. The study of surface species derived from flue gas contaminants is also envisaged.
