Chemisorption in aqueous amine solutions in the form of carbamate or bicarbonate ions is the most extensively tested method of CO2 capture from post-combustion flue gas. To design the most cost-effective strategy, different capture materials and options merit exploration. Amitesh Maiti on page 163 discusses current progress on some of these materials, including liquid solvents like modified amines and ionic liquids, nanoporous sorbents like zeolites and metal-organic frameworks, and polymeric membranes and membranesupported systems. Emphasis is placed on the role of atomistic modeling in the understanding, design, and optimization of new capture systems.
