The effects of greenhouse gases, like CO2, are becoming more and more visible, from drastic weather changes to global sea level rise. The resultant global warming has become an environmental issue of great concern in recent years. The potential for CO2 capture through metal-organic frameworks has been widely studied and is currently being explored as a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The strong structural and electronic properties of these frameworks make them excellent candidates for capturing CO2 due to their high porosity, tunable composition and good chemical stability. Functionalized metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are important because it allows for the development of MOF materials with properties that are tunable for many different applications. Many of these functions are gas adsorption, catalysis, and separation. Depending on the composition of the linkers and nodes, various functional groups can be introduced into the network through the organic linkers and metal nodes, resulting in MOFs with different functions. Mixed-metal MOFs are composed of several different metals. The variety of metals in a mixed-metal MOF gives the MOF many options for tailoring its properties. The resulting bimetallic MOFs are not only more thermally and chemically stable, but also can absorb more gases. The other objective of this study was to observe the effect of organic functional groups on CO2 adsorption in MOFs. The study found that organic functional groups have a significant effect on CO2 adsorption in MOFs.
