CO2 in the deep Earth may be more active than previously thought and may have played a bigger role in climate change than scientists knew before, according to a study by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

The research, led by Prof. PAN Ding, looked into the dissolution of CO2 in water, which has significant implications on ways to reduce the return of carbon from underground to the atmosphere. Read More...


Dissolved CO2 in water under nanoconfinement

Left: the solution is confined by graphene. Right: the solution is confined by stishovite (SiO2). The white, grey, red, and pink balls are the hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and silicon atoms, respectively.
