CO2 capture using amine incorporated UiO-66 in atmospheric pressure


Composite material, tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) incorporated UiO-66 was prepared by impregnation method to study CO2 capture in a fixed bed reactor, atmospheric pressure. All synthesized adsorbents were characterized using PXRD, N2 adsorption–desorption isotherms, FT-IR, TGA, SEM, and Elemental analysis. Characterization results have revealed that incorporated TEPA was present within pores of UiO-66. CO2 adsorption was higher on TEPA incorporated UiO-66 compared to UiO-66. It was due to the chemical interaction between –NH2 and CO2. High CO2 adsorption capacity 3.70 mmol g−1 was obtained on 30TEPA/UiO-66 at 75 °C, 1 bar. Because of more flexibility and high dispersive nature of TEPA at this temperature. The same CO2 adsorption capacity was obtained in each adsorption cycle without decomposition of the amine on 30TEPA/UiO-66. Avrami adsorption kinetic model has suggested adsorption of CO2 on composite material was chemical adsorption and deactivation model suggested an initial rate of adsorption was higher on TEPA incorporated UiO-66.
