Summary:

There is growing concern worldwide to cut down CO2 emissions in an attempt to reduce the rate of global warming. CO2 capture by adsorbents is receiving increasing attention due to its advantages over conventional technologies based on liquid solvents. I shall present in this talk recent developments, challenges and opportunities in design of novel materials for selective capture of CO2 and computational methodologies that we adopted in our group in understanding and fine-tuning the potential binding sites for CO2.
