Near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy was used to study the adsorption of CO2 in a hyperbranched aminosilica (HAS) compound, a porous solid state material with great potential for carbon capture applications. After dosing a

High Throughput Screening Tools for Thermoelectric Materials

December 4, 2014
Winnie K. Wong-Ng, Yonggao Yan, Makoto Otani, Joshua B. Martin, Kevin R. Talley, Sara C. Barron, David L. Carroll, C Hewitt, Howard Joress, Evans L. Thomas, Martin L. Green, Xinfeng Tang
A suite of complementary high-throughput screening systems for combinatorial films was developed at NIST to facilitate the search for efficient thermoelectric materials. These custom-designed capabilities include a facility for combinatorial thin film

Measurement, Standards, and Data Needs for CO2 Capture Materials: A Critical Review

October 21, 2013
Laura Espinal, Dianne L. Poster, Winnie K. Wong-Ng, Andrew J. Allen, Martin L. Green
The commercial deployment of cost-effective carbon capture technology is hindered partially by the lack of a proper suite of materials-related standards, data, and measurement methods, which would provide critical information for the systematic design of

Crystal Structure of NaY Zeolite with Adsorbed CO2 by Neutron Powder Diffraction

January 29, 2013
Winnie K. Wong-Ng, James A. Kaduk, Qingzhen Huang, Laura Espinal, Martin L. Green
The crystal structure of dehydrated NaY zeolite (Na-FAU structure type) with and without adsorbed CO2 has been determined at room temperature (RT) and at 4 K using neutron powder diffraction techniques. The CO2-containing sample was prepared at -78 °C and
