Researchers have developed a new material that can sextively capture carbon dioxide molecules, and efficiently convert them into useful organic products -- an advance that may help develop new ways to contain global greenhouse gas emissions.

研究人员已经开发出一种新材料,可以选择性地捕获二氧化碳分子,并有效地将它们转化为有用的有机产品——这一进展可能有助于开发新的方法来控制全球温室气体排放。

The researchers, including those from Kyoto University in Japan, said that the new material had high affinity towards carbon dioxide molecules, and can quickly and effectively convert it into useful organic materials.

包括日本京都大学的研究人员在内的研究人员表示,这种新材料对二氧化碳分子有很高的亲和力,可以迅速有效地将其转化为有用的有机材料。

The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, noted that a possible way to counteract the excess carbon dioxide produced from burning fossil fuels was to capture and sequester the greenhouse gas from the atmosphere.

这项发表在《自然通讯》杂志上的研究指出,抵消化石燃料燃烧产生的过量二氧化碳的一种可能方法是捕获并隔离大气中的温室气体。



The researchers said that the PCP is also recyclable with the efficiency of the trapping process not decreasing even after 10 reaction cycles.

研究人员说,PCP也是可回收的,即使经过10个反应周期,捕获过程的效率也不会降低。

"One of the greenest approaches to carbon capture is to recycle the carbon dioxide into high-value chemicals, such as cyclic carbonates which can be used in petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals," said co-author of the study Susumu Kitagawa from Kyoto University.

京都大学的Susumu Kitagawa是这项研究的合著者,他说:“最环保的碳捕获方法之一是将二氧化碳循环成高价值的化学物质,比如可用于石化和制药的环状碳酸盐。”

The researchers said that the captured gas molecules could be converted and used to make polyurethane -- a material with a wide variety of applications including clothing, domestic appliances and packaging.

研究人员表示,捕获的气体分子可以被转化并用于制造聚氨酯——一种应用广泛的材料,包括服装、家用电器和包装。
