Although a considerable amount of the research is focussed in carbon capture specifically towards flue gas separations, another area that is of interest is CO2/CH4 separation for the natural gas industries. It is believed that 40% of the world's reserves of natural gas are sour, and these gas reserves are typically left unexploited due to their high CO2 content and the costs associated with separation and transport. One recent class of adsorbents, metal organic frameworks (MOFs) has been advocated as potential candidates for CO2 removal from natural gas at high pressure. This can be attributed to their high CO2 capacities, which could be exploited in high pressure separations. In this work w..View full abstract
