A study on the explicit and implicit solvation models for calculation of solvation free energy of ions and pKa of amino acids presented recently [Gupta, M.; J. Chem. Theory. Comput. 2013, 9, 5021−5031] is extended for the study of amines and alkanolamines. Solvation free energies and pKa’s of a data...

Amine solvents used in post combustion CO2 capture (PCCC) plants react with NOx, forming carcinogenic nitrosamine and nitramine compounds. These can be emitted to the atmosphere, undergoing deposition to aquatic and terrestrial environments. In the current study, the hydrolytic and photolytic...

Chemical stability of amines under CO2 capture conditions is a well known problem both for process operability and related to economy and environmental issues. Many degradation studies have been conducted under different conditions and in different apparatuses. In this work the chemical stability of...

The ionization constants and carbamate stability constants for post combustion CO2 capture solvents are in this work studied with the help of molecular modeling. These two equilibrium constants are very important in understanding the thermodynamics of any solvent for post combustion carbon capture...

Emission of solvent and its degradation products from a typical absorption–desorption based Post Combustion CO2 Capture (PCCC) process is inevitable and thus, an area of growing concern. Recently, it has been pointed out that emissions can also occur by means of aerosol droplets. Conventional...

SINTEF Materials and Chemistry has recently designed an advanced laboratory test rig for studies of solvent degradation. This solvent degradation test rig (SDR) emulates the process conditions observed in an absorber/stripper configuration designed for CO2 capture. Aqueous solvent is degraded by...

Oxidative degradation experiments on five amines and two amino acids were performed in a new closed setup at atmospheric pressure. For most of the amines/amino acids significant degradation was not present under these conditions, except for MEA and MMEA. The degradation compounds found seem to...

The temperature sensitivity of pKa values for a data set of 10 amino acids and 5 carboxylic acids is studied using PCM and SM8T continuum solvation models coupled with density functional theoretical calculations at the B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of theory. The data set of amino acids was chosen on...

Oxidative degradation experiments on 2-ethanolamine (MEA) were performed at four different oxygen concentrations and at two temperatures. MEA loss and degradation product build-up were measured. Increasing the temperature from 55 to 75 °C was shown to have higher impact on the MEA loss than...
