The climate change caused by carbon dioxide is an indispensable adjunct to the means of industrial development. This being so, substantial scientists from all over the world are focused on capture & sequestration of CO2. Hence, lots of materials already prepared as a solution for CO2 problems. Especially, liquid absorbent MEA (Monoethylamine) which contain amide functional group is most commonly used for CO2 capture in these days. However, flue gas is heterogeneous and temperature is up to 40°C. This occur the corrosion and thermal degradation of MEA to be loss, decrease the efficiency of capturing the gas (8- 35%) and, unable recycle by chemically irreversible change. Therefore in this research we design the materials which keep the benefit of the MEA, CO2 capturing capacity, and improve their drawbacks.
