About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we want to highlight the ongoing work designing advanced materials for CCUS. By looking at the work going into designing materials that are being looked at for CCUS, readers of this issue will get a broader idea of what is being done with commonalities and trends between the work being able to be seen. The collection of this work can also add as an introductory point for researchers new to this field to understand what is being done in advanced material design and how they can be used in CCUS. Instead of focusing on a particular group or class of materials, readers can see a wide range of possibilities of how CCUS is being researched and the benefits of each of those classes.
The scope for this Research Topic is any work surrounding the design or application of advanced materials for CCUS. We encourage novel research manuscripts, opinions, or high-level reviews including but not limited to the below themes:
• Principle or methodologies for the design of materials for use in any step of the CCUS process, either through computational or experimental methods; e.g., using machine learning or high-throughput synthesis to find new materials for CCUS
• Emerging methods for synthesizing new materials and their performance for CCUS, e.g. discussion of new materials for CCUS
• Performance of materials for use in CCUS
• New tool development (experimental or computational) for analyzing or predicting CCUS performance of materials; e.g., developments of tools or processes which can help in analyzing materials for CCUS processes or that might be able to help predict if CCUS properties similar to GCMC being used for gas adsorption properties
• Analysis of high-performing materials for CCUS and determination of underlying trends of those materials; e.g., any methods or analysis to give insights into materials for CCUS
• Studies focused on understanding the mechanisms of carbon capture, utilization, or storage, e.g., computational studies focused on understanding the underlying characteristics of CCUS performance
• Advanced practical applications for materials in CCUS, e.g. showing how materials could be integrated into novel or emerging fields for CCUS.
• Multi-scale systems-level optimization and analysis including process engineering using materials for CCUS; e.g., work showing and optimizing the CCUS process using new materials
• Studies may be technical, economic, political, or multi-disciplinary in nature
