Scientists capture carbon-dioxide with everyday baking soda

Carbon-dioxide could now be captured using everyday baking soda, courtesy a new study by scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory at Harvard University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

This group of scientists used a media that comprised core-shell microcapsules with a highly permeable polymer shell that contains sodium carbonate liquid – this was found to react with carbon-dioxide as well as absorb the same. Meanwhile, sodium carbonate is the main composition of any home-use baki...
