Abstract: With the current high consumption of fossil fuels and the expected further increase in their demand in the foreseeable future, the selective capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from flue gases emanating from post-combustion power plants is critically important from the climate change mitigation viewpoint. Among the various adsorbents explored by the scientific community, two-dimensional (2D) graphene and its various derivatives, such as graphene oxide (GO), are receiving increased attention because of their many exciting properties. This doctoral thesis focused on studying the tunable surface chemistry of graphene/GO and their macroscopic assemblies and/or hybrids as well as optimizing their functional characteristics for post-combustion CO2 capture applications. The outcome of the thesis provides a solid experimental and theoretical framework for the rational design and development of next-generation of graphene-based CO2 adsorbents. Additionally, graphene can be manufactured cost-effectively from sufficiently abundant waste biomass for CO2 capture applications, contributing to the emerging circular economy.
