dc.description.abstractWe report the nanoconfinement-mediated graphitic nanoporous carbon nitride (gNPCN) adsorbents with a high content of inbuilt basic nitrogen (N) (48%) by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) for efficient CO2 adsorption. The gNPCNs (gNPCN-150 and gNPCN-130) are synthesized using the mesoporous SBA-15 silica template and a single carbon-nitrogen (C–N) precursor (guanidine hydrochloride). The various adsorbents were utilized for investigating the influence of pore size (PS), surface area (SA), and type of adsorbent for CO2 adsorption performance. The capacity for CO2 capturing of gNPCN-150 reached 23.1 mmol/g at 0 °C under 30 bar pressure. This CO2 capturing capacity value was higher than the capacity gNPCN-130, SBA15, activated carbon (AC), and multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCN) under identical conditions. The gNPCN materials exhibited superior CO2 adsorption ability that is ascribed to the presence of the highly organized mesoporosity, inbuilt high content of basic N site for adsorbing more CO2 through acid-base interaction, and tunable surface-structural properties. Moreover, the synthesis strategy is remarkably flexible in selecting C–N sources. This study features graphitic high-ordered nanoporous CN materials as a resourceful platform towards the efficient CO2 capture.
