AbstractThe CO2 capture performance of two novel amino acid ionic liquid (AAIL)-based adsorbents was studied. The sorbents were synthesized by immobilizing two triamino-functionalized ionic liquids (i.e., 1-aminoethyl-3-methylimidazolium lysine ([AEMIM][Lys]) and 1-aminopropyl-3-methylimidazolium lysine ([APMIM][Lys])) into two types of supports (i.e., mesoporous silica SBA-15 and polymer poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)) with different loadings. [AEMIM][Lys] and [APMIM][Lys] with one additional amino group in their cations are efficient at enhancing the CO2 capacity of subsequent supported AAILs, as higher numbers of functional amino groups in AAILs significantly increase their CO2 capture capacity. The prepared samples were characterized by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET) analysis, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) decomposition, and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The samples were also investigated for CO2 sorption performance by CO2 isotherms and TGA kinetics. 50 wt% [AEMIM][Lys]-immobilized on PMMA showed the best CO2 capture capacities of 1.5 mmol/g-sorb at adsorption conditions of 30°C and under 15% CO2 inlet concentration.
