'Flipped' metal oxide cage can sort CO2 from CO

Spherical vanadium oxide clusters that can trap and hold carbon dioxide

10-Jan-2019

How do you separate carbon dioxide from carbon monoxide? One way, showcased by a new study from Kanazawa University, is to use a bowl of vanadium. More precisely, a hollow, spherical cluster of vanadate molecules can discriminate between CO and CO2, allowing potential uses in CO2 storage and ...
