12. Carbon Storage Properties of OMS-2 Manganese Oxide
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 4/10/2012
Authors: Lan (Lan) Li, Eric J Cockayne, Laura Espinal, Winnie K Wong-Ng
Abstract: Manganese oxide OMS-2 material, also known as alpha-MnO2, exhibits CO2 sorption hysteresis at pressures > 7 bar. Our experiments show that the hysteretic behavior strongly depends on time, temperature and pressure. To understand the atomic structures ...
