Christopher Jones is a professor
at Georgia Institute of Technology where leads a research group that works on
materials design for catalytic and separation applications. A major component
of this work is developing amine-functionalized solid materials for absorptive
separation of CO2 from dilute gas streams.In particular, his group is working to
develop a class of adsorbents referred to as hyperbranched aminosilica (HAS)
materials for post-combustion CO2 capture from flue gas.In collaboration with Global Thermostat, Dr. Jones has demonstrated that these materials
are also outstanding sorbents for the removal of CO2 from even very
dilute gas streams, such as ambient air.He has partnered with Global
Thermostat in the development of new, efficient air capture processes. Dr.
Jones received his PhD in chemical engineering from California Institute of Technology.
