Praveen Thallapally's Research Published in Nano Today

August 2007
Congratulations to ETD's Praveen Thallapally whose work was published in the August 2007 edition of Nano Today magazine. Praveen and a team of researchers from the University of Missouri-Columbia and the Universitá di Salerno in Italy discovered a porous organic solid that can capture carbon dioxide. The CO2 can be captured at room temperature and pressure, which is significantly better than commercially available materials. The new material's ability to capture CO2 in an more efficient and cost manner than other materials makes it a potential candidate in carbon sequestration applications. A senior research scientist at the Lab, Praveen is credited with developing a new class of compounds called frustrated organic and metal coordination solids for gas storage and separation. Congratulations, Praveen! Keep up the excellent work!
