Abstract

original image

The cover picture shows the use of an asymmetric hybrid organic–inorganic membrane in a zero-emission power plant based on the pre-combustion CO2 capture scheme. In their communication on page 1375, H. Qi, H. J. M. Bouwmeester and co-workers describe the preparation and extraordinary performance of a sol–gel- derived microporous ethylene-bridged silsesquioxane membrane onto a multilayer support for enhanced CO2 separation. The membrane combines superior hydrothermal stability with excellent permselectivities.
