Enhanced CO2 Adsorption on Nitrogen-Doped Carbon Materials by Salt and Base Co-Activation Method
AbstractNitrogen-doped carbon materials with enhanced CO2 adsorption were prepared by the salt and base co-activation method. First, resorcinol-formaldehyde resin was synthesized with a certain salt as an additive and used as a precursor. Next, the resulting precursor was mixed with KOH and subsequently carbonized under ammonia flow to finally obtain the nitrogen-doped carbon materials. A series of samples, with and without the addition of different salts, were prepared, characterized by XRD (X-ray powder diffraction), elemental analysis, BET (N2-adsorption-desorption analysis), XPS (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) and SEM (Scanning electron microscopy) and tested for CO2 adsorption. The results showed that the salt and base co-activation method has a remarkable enhancing effect on the CO2 capture capacity. The combination of KCl and KOH was proved to be the best combination, and 167.15 mg CO2 could be adsorbed with 1 g nitrogen-doped carbon at 30 °C under 1 atm pressure. The materials characterizations revealed that the introduction of the base and salt could greatly increase the content of doped nitrogen, the surface area and the amount of formed micropore, which led to enhanced CO2 absorption of the carbon materials.
