A study to determine the structure and activity relationships of various amine based CO2 absorbents was performed in which, the absorption of pure CO2 at atmospheric pressure was measured to assess the total absorption rate and capacities. Results showed that an increase in chain length between the amine and different functional groups in the absorbent structure, result in a decrease of absorption rate whereas, the absorption capacity was increased in most absorbents.
