A series ofMgO-based adsorbents were prepared through solution–combustion synthesis and ball-milling process. The prepared MgO-based powders were characterized using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, N2 physisorptionmeasurements, and employed as potential adsorbents for CO2 adsorption. The influence of structural and textural properties of these adsorbents over the CO2 adsorption behaviour was also investigated. The results showed that MgO-based products prepared by solution–combustion and ball-milling processes, were highly porous, fluffy, nanocrystalline structures in nature, which are unique physico-chemical properties that significantly contribute to enhance their CO2 adsorption. It was found that the MgO synthesized by solution combustion process, using a molar ratio of urea to magnesium nitrate (2:1), and treated by ball-milling during 2.5 hr (MgO-BM2.5h), exhibited the maximum CO2adsorption capacity of 1.611 mmol/g at 25°C and 1 atm, mainly via chemisorption. The CO2 adsorption behaviour on the MgO-based adsorbents was correlated to their improved specific surface area, total pore volume, pore size distribution and crystallinity. The reusability of synthesized MgO-BM2.5h was confirmed by five consecutive CO2 adsorption–desorption times, without any significant loss of performance, that supports the potential of MgO-based adsorbent. The results confirmed that the special features of MgO prepared by solution–combustion and treated by ball-milling during 2.5 hr are favorable to be used as effective MgO-based adsorbent in post-combustion CO2 capture technologies.
