Encapsulation of CO2 capture materials

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

This project focuses on the development of microcapsules that contain novel solvent and sorbents for CO2 capture. The chemistry of shell and CO2 capture materials will be studied and the effect of flow rates and curing process on the microcapsule stability and mass transfer behaviors will be investigated.
