3D printed MOF monoliths help Missouri scientists capture CO2 for fire extinguishers, spacecraft

Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology have 3D printed two types of metal-organic framework (MOF) monoliths, from MOF-74(Ni) and UTSA-16(Co). The 3D printed monoliths can be used to capture carbon dioxide, which can then be used in practical applications. Everyone knows that the planet has a bit of a carbon dioxide problem, with the burning of coal and other fossil fuels causing an increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere. CO2 and other greenhouse gases absorb and emit infrared radiation, causing a rise in temperature all across the world. Fortunately, not all CO2 produced by […]
