Although scientists have come up with many materials for soaking up excess carbon dioxide, most have drawbacks that keep them from ever leaving the lab. In the case of organic nanoporous polymers, the problem is that as temperatures rise, these materials have trouble differentiating CO2 from nitrogen gas. Now a team led by Cafer T. Yavuz and Ali Coskun of Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology has . . .
