Donated industrial CO2 sorbents Na2O/Al2O3 were studied by means of DRIFTS and Raman spectroscopy, along with X% Na2O/Al2O3 sorbents synthesized by incipient wetness impregnation. CO2 adsorption studies revealed multiple adsorbed carbonate species. The role of adsorbed carbonate species in the reversible CO2 capture process will be discussed.
