CO2 removal via amine-based solutions is currently the most widely used practice in process industries. However, due to their high cost in regeneration and severe effects on the mechanical structure of the processing units (i.e. corrosion), alternative methods for the removal of CO2 from natural gas resources has received attention, one of which is the adsorption of CO2 on porous materials. Inorganic basic carbonate compounds represent a class of porous materials that could be used to selectively to adsorb CO2. In this work, metal carbonates were prepared consisting of Zn2+, Mg2+, and Cu2+ metal ions. The samples were characterized with Powder X-ray Diffraction Analysis (PXRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and BET analysis. Furthermore, these samples were measured with Rubotherm Magnetic Suspension Balance to investigate their CO2 adsorption behavior and performance.
