The art of capturing CO2: A series of porous, nitrogen-doped carbons for CO2 capture have been developed from task-specific ionic liquid (TSIL) precursors by using high-yield carbonization reactions. The porous, nitrogen-doped compound derived from the carbonization of a TSIL exhibits an exceptional CO2 absorption capacity (at 0 °C and 1 bar) because of strong interactions between the CO2 molecules and nitrogen-containing basic sites within the carbon framework.
