In this article it talks about how a new material with micropores might be a way to fight climate change. Scientists have created crystals that capture carbon dioxide much more efficiently than previously known materials, even in the presence of water. So far this has been difficult, since the presence of water prevents the adsorption of CO2. Complete dehydration is a costly process. Scientists have now created a stable and recyclable material, where the micropores within the crystal have different adsorption sites for carbon dioxide and water. As far as I know this is the first material that captures CO2 in an efficient way in the presence of humidity also in this new material the CO2 uptake is enormous compared to anything else like it.
