In the quest for a diversified energy portfolio, new materials are needed to effectively and efficiently separate and capture carbon dioxide. In this talk, Teague will describe efforts to capture carbon dioxide using two advanced materials systems. First, some room temperature ionic liquids can chemically capture carbon dioxide; he will discuss structure within these systems. Second, he will describe the synthesis and characterization of microporous carbons derived from soft drinks.
