Put up-combustion carbon seize from fossil fuels for concentrated sources comparable to energy crops has been thought-about as one of many environment friendly methods to mitigate CO2 emissions. Nevertheless, standard adsorbents in bodily adsorption processes have confronted the challenges of failure within the presence of moisture in flue gases. Right here, now we have efficiently synthesized polypyrrole (PPy) adsorbent utilizing Fenton’s reagent and demonstrated that the filtrate will be recycled for the synthesis of PPy. The only part fuel adsorption capacities of PPy have been measured to acquire CO2, CH4, and N2 adsorption quantities of 16.73, 5.19, and 1.06 cm3/g at 303 Ok and 101 kPa, respectively. Calculations by the IAST technique show that PPy has glorious fuel selectivity for CO2/N2 and CO2/CH4 of 46 and 4.0, which will be accommodated to CO2 separation in flue gases and biogas. To simulate flue fuel carbon seize, we investigated the dynamic adsorption capability of PPy on CO2 within the presence of water vapor utilizing a breakthrough system in laboratory. The CO2 adsorption capability was twice larger in moisture than dry situations, which was attributed to the presence of water vapor shaped hydrogen bonds that improve its adsorption capability via electrostatic and acid-base interactions of CO2 with PPy. This inexperienced and facilely synthesized polypyrrole adsorbent has an excellent potential for carbon seize in excessive humid flue gases.
