Studies from East China Institute of Technology Yield New Data on Oxides

June 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Fresh data on Oxides are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Nanchang, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Na-doped lithium metatitanate (Na-doped Li2TiO3) absorbent was doped with Na2CO3 and lithium metatitanate (Li2TiO3) was prepared by a solid-state reaction method from mixture of TiO2 and Li2CO3. The Na-doped lithium metatitanate was characterized by X- ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and surface area."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the East China Institute of Technology, "Carbon dioxide absorption on Na-doped lithiummetatitanate was investigated using TG-DTA. The results reveal an increase of the CO2 absorption capacity of the Na-doped materials with respect to pure Li2TiO3. XRD patterns of the doped samples suggest a limited substitution of Li by Na atoms within the Li2TiO3 structure."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The results of experimental and modeling work were summarized to better understand the relationship between the sorbent microstructure and carbon dioxide absorption kinetics."
