Physical Adsorption - Definition, glossary, details

Physical adsorption relies on the affinity of CO2 to the surface of a material under certain conditions without forming a chemical bond. Adsorbents can separate CO2 from a stream by preferentially attracting it to the material surface at high pressures. During capture, the chemical potential of the adsorbed CO2 is lower than the chemical potential of CO2 in the gas mixture.There are two types of physical adsorption process:Physical adsorption using regenerable adsorbentsMembrane based separation
