Adsorption of Ch4 and CO2 on Zr-metal organic frameworks
MetadataShow full item record
Zirconium-metal organic frameworks (Zr-MOFs) were synthesized with or without ammonium hydroxide as an additive in the synthesis process. It was found that addition of ammonium hydroxide would change the textural structure of Zr-MOF. The BET surface area, pore volume, and crystal size of Zr-MOF were reduced after addition of ammonium hydroxide. However, the crystalline structure and thermal stability were maintained and no functional groups were formed. Adsorption tests showed that Zr-MOF presented much higher CO2 adsorption than CH4. Zr-MOF exhibited CO2 and CH4 adsorption of 8.1 and 3.6 mmol/g, respectively, at 273 K, 988 kPa. The addition of ammonium hydroxide resulted in the Zr-MOF with a slight lower adsorption of CO2 and CH4, however, the selectivity of CO2/CH4 is significantly enhanced.
