A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher and her team are developing technology that could help keep astronauts safe from carbon dioxide buildup during flight and aboard the International Space Station.

Dr. Fateme Rezaei, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering at Missouri S&T, and the team have developed “robust structures” in mechanically strong configurations that are comparable to powders in adsorbing CO2. Their findings were reported in the American Chemical Society’s Applied Materials & Interfaces publications in September 2016 and February 2017.
