Human activities over the last quarter-millennium have led to a dramatic increase in atmospheric CO2 concentrations, causing unprecedented global warming and climate change. Carbon-capture technologies that can remove CO2 from industrial sources or directly from the air can reverse these trends, provided novel materials that can separate CO2 selectively and energy-efficiently can be developed. The April, 2022 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights promising new materials for CO2 capture, including solid sorbents, liquid solvents, and membranes, as well as new approaches for accelerated design of such materials based on machine learning.
This webinar will feature talks from several authors from the MRS Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A session will follow each talk.
