Title: Self-supported branched poly(ethyleneimine) materials for CO 2 adsorption from simulated flue gas

Abstract

A family of self-supported, cross-linked PEI materials is demonstrated as promising CO 2adsorbents, displaying (i) good CO 2capacity (ii) rapid uptake kinetics, and (iii) good stability relative to conventional supported amine adsorbents.
