Because of concerns about global warming, scientists have been working to develop ways to capture, store and use the carbon dioxide that fossil fuel industries emit during energy production.
A Washington State University research team developed a way to create hollow, nanorod‑shaped porous materials made of cobalt metal ions and organic molecules to separate the carbon dioxide in a way that works under real‑life conditions.
Carbon capture systems have to be able to selectively grab carbon dioxide out of the exhaust gases under the dynamic conditions that exist in a power plant. At the same time, such systems need to be inexpensive and energy efficient.
