Nanomaterials that produce formic acid.
Scientists have created a nanomaterial with metal-organic framework structure (MOF), which are able to absorb carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the air, creating one formic acid.
Scientists have created a nanomaterial with metal-organic framework structure (MOF) on the basis of MIL-140B and MIL-140C, functionalized Lewis pairs (acid and alkaline), integrated in frame linker. New nanomaterials capable of absorbing carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the air, creating one formic acid (HCOOH).
These nanomaterials are catalysts. They Flex the geometric structure of the molecule carbon dioxide, CO2 activated, reducing the energy barriers to chemical reaction and thereby contributing to the interaction of carbon dioxide with hydrogen.
Formic acid is a useful chemical compound and is used in medicine, in agriculture, as a preservative of hay and silage, chemical, textile and food industries.
Created by scientists metal-organic framework structure (MOF) can be used for CO2 capture from exhaust gases and for catalytic conversion of CO2 to valuable chemical substances.
