Investigation Of Degradation Of Amine Sorbent, Elijah Arendt Jan 2016

Investigation Of Degradation Of Amine Sorbent, Elijah Arendt

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

The purpose of this study is to investigate the performance of amine-grafted sorbents, specifically when they are degraded at 120°C. This study varied the amine source and the amount of it in the sorbent. The additive type and the amount of it was also manipulated. The performance of sorbents is characterized by CO2 capture capacity, which is the amount (in mmol) of CO2 captured per gram of sorbent at 40°C. The best performing sorbents are ones that maintain their CO2 capture capacity after degradation. When the amount of additive was manipulated, the sorbents containing 2 ...
