Ligand choice can enhance carbon dioxide's ability to bind to MOFs by a factor of 2 to 3, yielding clues for making better carbon-capture systems.
Using ab initio methods, we examine the affinity of this MOF for CO2 and find that it can be greatly improved by modifying the organic linker molecules. Read more about our work on MOFs for carbon capture here.
