Abstract:

The alicyclic diamine, 1,4-cyclohexanebismethylamine, is an efficient regenerative CO2 absorbent. Both the CO2 absorption rate and capacity are equal to that of MEA. The regeneration rate, however, is slightly less. The disadvantages of 1,4-cyclohexanebismethylamine as a regenerative CO2 absorbent are formation of a polymeric-type product when saturated with CO2 and an inferior oxidation stability. One advantage of the diamine over MEA is its higher boiling point ca. 240C compared with 170C. Author
