Amorphous Hydroxylation of MgO in the Presence of High Humidity


The hydration of MgO under various ambient conditions revealed that high relative humidity promotes formation of a hydrated, disordered layer on MgO. 

Results demonstrate that direct air capture of carbon dioxide that utilizes MgO as a substrate is most effective under high relative humidity.
