CO2 capture resulted from the combustion of carbon based fossil fuels in the post-combustion stage of power plants and the absorption of CO2 for natural gas sweetening purposes are two common major industrial problems closely related with environmental, economical and technological impacts that need to be addressed. Porous inorganic compounds have received attention in recent years due to their possible applications in carbon dioxide capture and storage field. In this work, several classes of porous materials have been targeted for their potential use for CO2 capture. A silicone-based mesoporous material, SBA-15, Ga3+ substituted hydrotalcides, and inorganic basic carbonate compounds consisting of Zn2+, Mg2+, and Cu2+ metal ions have been prepared and characterized for this purpose. Furthermore, these samples were measured with Rubotherm Magnetic Suspension Balance to investigate their CO2 adsorption behavior and performance.
