Scientists at Queen’s University Belfast have made a major breakthrough by making a porous liquid – with the potential for a massive range of new technologies including ‘carbon capture’.
Researchers in the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Queen’s, along with colleagues at the University of Liverpool, UK, and other, international partners, have invented the new liquid and found that it can dissolve unusually large amounts of gas, which are absorbed into the ‘holes’ in the liquid. The results of their research are published today in the journal Nature (“Liquids with permanent porosity”).
The three-year research project could pave the way for many more efficient and greener chemical processes, including ultimately the procedure known as carbon capture – trapping carbon dioxide from major sources, for example a fossil-fuel power plant, and storing it to prevent its entry into the atmosphere.
