Title: Preorganization and Cooperation for Highly Efficient and Reversible Capture of Low-Concentration CO 2 by Ionic Liquids

Abstract

Here, a novel strategy based on the concept of preorganization and cooperation has been designed for a superior capacity to capture low–concentration CO 2 by imide–based ionic liquids. By using this strategy, for the first time, an extremely high gravimetric CO 2 capacity of up to 22 wt % (1.65 mol mol –1) and excellent reversibility (16 cycles) have been achieved from 10 vol. % of CO 2 in N 2 when using an ionic liquid having a preorganized anion. Through a combination of quantum–chemical calculations and spectroscopic investigations, it is suggested that cooperative interactions between CO 2 and multiple active sites in the preorganized anion are the driving force for the superior CO 2 capacity and excellent reversibility.
