Inside Back Cover: Temperature-Responsive Microgel Films as Reversible Carbon Dioxide Absorbents in Wet Environment (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 10/2014)
Hydrogel films composed of temperature-responsive microgel particles (GPs) containing amine groups work as stimuli-responsive carbon dioxide absorbent, as reported by Y. Hoshino and co-workers in their Communication on page 2654 ff. The reversible CO2 absorption capacity of the GP films is proportional to the film thickness and is larger than that of a monolithic gel film. This discovery shows that the GP films can be used to sequester energy-efficiently CO2 from high-humidity exhaust gases.
