An amine-based anion exchange resin was utilized to capture CO 2 from ambient air. The sorbent is able to absorb CO 2 when it is dry and release CO 2 when exposed to liquid water or water vapor. The absorption isotherm test shows that the sorbent behaves efficiently even at very low CO 2 concentration. Its capacity in carbonate form is 0.86 mol of CO2 per kilogram under 25 °C and 40 Pa. Langmuir model describes well the absorption isotherm at high saturation. The kinetics of CO 2 desorption

We accounted for boundary layer transport limitations and made boundary layers thin enough to avoid such changes. The kinetic parameters of desorption, desorption coefficient and activation energy, are determined.
