A group, led by chemists Ramanathan Vaidhyanathan and George K. H. Shimizu of the University of Calgary and Tom Woo of the University of Ottawa have used a mixture of computational and crystallographic techniques to disseminate the specific binding interactions for CO2 molecules within a amine-functionalized metal-organic-framework compound.
The research highlights that the combination of appropriate pore size, strongly interacting amine functional groups and the cooperative binding of CO2 guest molecules is responsible for low pressure binding and large uptake of CO2 in the material.

The article, entitled 'Direct Observation and Quantification of CO2 Binding Within an Amine-Functionalized Nanoporous Solid', was published in this months Science magazine and can be viewed online at http://www.sciencemag.org/content/330/6004/650.abstract
