The proposed work aims to develop novel membrane technology for efficient, high selective high-temperature carbon dioxide and simultaneous carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide capture. Realization of high-performance membranes for such applications is widely recognized as a potentially revolutionary technology for continuous carbon capture. The research focuses on two materials: sodium oxide promoted alumina and silicalite-1. The main objectives involve synthesizing and characterizing the materials. Membranes will then be modeled, synthesized, and characterized. Success of this program should lead to novel practical and fundamental insight and, potentially, the establishment of a new paradigm for membrane based carbon sequestration.
