Sustainable chemistry is primarily concerned with the production of energy and chemical sources from materials such as biomass feedstock. However, fossil resources still power the majority of energy-required processes producing greenhouse gases (i.e., CO2) that have negative effects on the environment.

There is an increasing amount of research focussed on developing practical technologies for the capture and sequestration of CO2, which is the topic of Issue 8, 2010 of ChemSusChem. Guest Editors are Christopher W. Jones, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA, and Edward J. Maginn, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, USA.

The issue covers capture techniques using metal-organic framework materials, electric-swing adsorption processes, and various absorption solvents and solids, such as aqueous ethylenediamine solutions, aminosilicone mixtures, amino acid salt solutions, amidines, polyethylene glycol-stabilized silica-supported tetraethylpentamine adsorbents, high surface area carbon molecular sieves, and metal-substituted layered double hydroxides.
