Abstract

Abstract Two hybrid materials composed of metal-organic framework (JUC-32) nanoparticles and carboxyl-modified multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were synthesised successfully in situ and characterized by TEM, PXRD, and TGA. The gas adsorption properties of these two hybrid materials were compared with the original JUC-32 material and a physical mixture of JUC-32 and MWCNTs. The results indicated that the composite materials absorbed larger amounts of CO2 and CH4 per specific surface area than the original materials, and that the adsorption enthalpies of CO2 and CH4 had significantly increased.
