UH chemists develop molecule to bind together greenhouse gases

UH chemistry researchers Allan Jacobson, Ognjen Miljanic and Olafs Daugulis have developed a molecule that could bind several types of greenhouse gases.

“We developed a molecule that self-assembles into a structure that can capture these greenhouse vapors to the tune of 75 percent by weight,” Miljanić said in a UH press release. “This molecule could be used to capture Freons from disposed refrigeration systems, for example, or to concentrate them prior to analysis of their content.”

The researchers collaborated with professors from the University of Chicago and the Taiwan National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center and have filed a provisional patent for their work.
