Abstract

Bio-based aerogels with customizable porosities and functionalities constitute significant
potential for CO2 capture. Developing bio-based aerogels from different polysaccharides and proteins is a safe, economical, and environmentally sustainable approach. Polysaccharides are biodegradable, sustainable, renewable, and plentiful in nature. Because of these advantages, the use of bio-based aerogels with porosity and amine functionality has attracted considerable interest. In this review we have discussed the recent development in the synthesis of bio-based aerogels and their application in CO2 capture.
