Technological civilization often depends on processes that have a significant environmental impact, but emissions control catalysts or porous adsorbent materials can ameliorate these risks.
Opportunities and challenges in the development of advanced materials for emission control catalysts
Exhaust emissions catalysts can be used for the removal of harmful pollutants. This Review explores synthesis routes and materials for advanced catalysts, and identifies grand challenges for the transformation of pollutants.
Porous materials can selectively and reversibly adsorb large quantities of gas. This Review highlights progress made in using this class of materials for CO2 capture processes and discusses key gaps that the materials community can address to accelerate greater adoption of adsorptive carbon capture technologies.
