A Step Up for Separating Hydrocarbons
A solid sorbent that selectively binds hydrocarbons may help the petrochemical industry reduce costs and energy consumption by increasing the efficiency of—or eliminating—energy-intensive separations processes, according to a study published in Science (DOI: 10.1126/science.1217544).
The investigation was conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Md., and coworkers. It demonstrates that metal organic . . .
