Evaluating the efficacy of amino acids as CO2 capturing agents: a first principles investigation.


Comprehension of the basic concepts for the design of systems for CO2 adsorption is imperative for increasing interest in technology for CO2 capture from the effluents. The efficacy of 20 naturally occurring amino acids (AAs) is demonstrated as the most potent CO2 capturing agents in the process of chemical absorption and physisorption through a systematic… (More)
