Capturing CO2: conventional versus ionic-liquid based technologies
2012 (English)In: Russian Chemical Reviews, ISSN 0036-021X, Vol. 81, no 5, 435-457 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
Since CO2 facilitates pipeline corrosion and contributes to a decrease of the calorific value of gaseous fuels, its removal has become an issue of significant economic importance. The present review discusses various types of traditional CO2 capture technologies in terms of their efficiency, complexity in system design, costs and environmental impact. The focus is hereby not only on conventional approaches but also on emerging 'green' solvents such as ionic liquids. The suitability of different ionic liquids as gas separation solvents is discussed in the present review and a description on their synthesis and properties in terms of CO2 capture is provided. The bibliography includes 136 references.
