Abstract

Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is highly expected to be mitigating the discharges of carbon dioxide in a surrounding environment. Solvents are an integral part of CCS. So far, several solvents have been explored the interest of meeting the requirements such as accessibility, non-harmfulness, biocompatibility, recyclability, and inexpensiveness. However, most solvents face failure in fulfilling the requirements due to many factors, so, this review paper gives a brief discussion about another category of solvent, an analogue of ionic liquids (ILs) named deep eutectic solvent (DES). Extensive research has been done on DES in recent years because of their various attractive advantages, i.e., non-poisonousness, biodegradability, cheap cost and easy preparation, that make them as a promising green solvent for many industrial procedure and application, for instance, polymer synthesis, biodiesel treatment, green chemistry, electrochemistry etc. Therefore, this manuscript mainly focusses on CO2 capturing through DES in oil and gas field. In addition, the preparation and chemical structures of this novel solvent (DES) is also discussed. Moreover, a detailed study based on experimental solubility of CO2 in DESs is also reported in this article.
