    Carbon capture typically relies on pressure or temperature swings for uptake and release of CO2. Researchers now present a device exploiting electrochemistry to drive these processes in an electro-swing approach that grants flexibility for coupling to intermittent energy resources and may have broad applications for carbon capture.

    Metal–organic frameworks are promising adsorbents for CO2 capture from flue gas, but many perform poorly when exposed to flue gas containing water. Now, a computational screening approach identifies MOFs with preserved CO2/N2 selectivities in wet flue gas and experiments confirm their outstanding CO2 capture performance.
