(510d) Investigation of the Dynamic Adsorption of CO Using Metal-Organic Frameworks
AIChE Annual Meeting
Wednesday, November 16, 2016 - 1:18pm to 1:34pm
This study investigates the use of a class of adsorbents, namely metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), for purification and separation of CO from gas streams containing high levels of N2. Particularly, several MOFs were synthesized, characterized and then tested for CO adsorption under dynamic conditions. The effect of Cu+ impregnation on the performance of the materials was investigated as well. The mechanisms of adsorption were studied so as to identify the features controlling the uptake and selectivity and lead to the design of better adsorbents.
