Highly CO2-permeable membranes derived from a midblock-sulfonated multiblock polymer after submersion in water
To mitigate the effect of atmospheric CO2 on global climate change, gas separation materials that simultaneously exhibit high CO2 permeability and selectivity in gas mixtures must be developed. In this study, CO2 transport through midblock-sulfonated block polymer membranes prepared from four differ...
Manipulation of Fibril Surfaces in Nanocellulose-Based Facilitated Transport Membranes for Enhanced CO2 Capture
The transition toward sustainable processing entails the use of biobased alternatives as functional materials to reduce the overall carbon footprint. Nanocellulose, due to its natural availability, biodegradability, excellent mechanical properties, tunable surface, and high aspect ratio, is attracti...

Incorporation of an ionic liquid into a midblock-sulfonated multiblock polymer for CO2 capture
In the present work, hybrid block ionomer/ionic liquid (IL) membranes containing up to 40 wt% IL are prepared by incorporating 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([Bmim][BF4]) into a midblock-sulfonated pentablock polymer (Nexar) that behaves as a thermoplastic elastomer. Various analytic...
Effect of liquid viscosity on the performance of a non-porous membrane contactor for CO2 capture
The effect of liquid viscosity on the performance of a non-porous membrane contactor is important to study for a proper solvent selection and process design. In this work, the overall mass transfer coefficient for MEA- and NaOH-based solutions was studied using a string of discs contactor in the tem...
