The porous liquid (PLs) is a new material containing both permanent porosity of porous materials and liquid fluidity of solvent at room temperature, which has shown a great potential in gas separation. In this study, a novel type ? porous liquids were prepared using 2-methylimidazole zinc salt (ZIF-8) modified by tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) as the main units and 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium Bis(trifluoro-methanesulfonyl)-imide ([EMlm][NTf2]) as the sterically hindered solvent. The effect of amine loading on the CO2 absorption performance of PLs was investigated. When amine load was 30 wt%, 30TEPA@ZIF-8 not only had the pore structure inside but also effectively increased the CO2 absorption capacity of PLs. When the effect of different parameters on CO2 absorption capacity was investigated, it was found that the optimal adsorption temperature was 60 °C, and the optimal concentration of the main units was7.5 wt%. After five cycles, the absorbent's cycle efficiency and desorption efficiency were more than 98 %. All the results indicate that the prepared PLs in this paper had an application potential in CO2 capture.
