Multifunctional Materials for CO2 Absorption and Catalytic Conversion

About this Research Topic

With the increase of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, efficient carbon capture, storage, and utilization technologies are urgently needed. Multifunctional materials could combine the carbon capture and catalytic energy conversion into “one-pot”, which shows significant advantages in regards to capital and operational cost. Meanwhile, the combination of CO2 adsorption and energy conversion could benefit each other due to the shift of thermodynamic equilibrium. Therefore, novel multifunctional materials are rapidly being developed to fulfil the need of combining these two steps more efficiently.

This Research Topic will highlight the scientific advancements and technological development of multifunctional materials for carbon capture and catalytic conversion, and it will provide a critical analysis of the current status and future opportunities of this emerging field. All aspects from the multifunctional materials for CO2 adsorption and energy conversion are welcomed. Optimization of reaction conditions, innovative technologies, process simulation, as well as economic and environmental impacts are equally welcomed. Specifically, the Topic Editors encourage submissions from topics including, but not limited to, the following list:
1. Multifunctional materials for sorption-enhanced catalytic reaction (e.g. reforming, water-gas-shift reaction)
2. Multifunctional materials for CO2 capture and direct thermocatalytic conversion
3. Multifunctional materials for CO2 capture and direct electrochemical/photoelectrochemical utilization
4. Techno-economic, life cycle, and system analyses of related carbon capture and catalytic conversion processes
5. Critical reviews and perspectives on the state-of-the-art and future development of carbon capture and catalytic conversion

This Research Topic solicits high-quality original research, perspective, mini-review, and review articles.


Keywords: carbon capture and storage, multifunctional materials, catalysis, CO2 utilization


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
