Functionalization and design of materials are essential to reduce CO2 concentration in air with an ability to integrate into a life support system for NASA’s future exploration mission architectures, spacecraft designs, and habitat designs. The proposed air revitalization system takes advantage of the high capacity and selectivity of CO2 absorbing materials confirming to a tunable and mechanically stable architecture. The immediate goal is to maintain an acceptable air quality in cabin by removing the metabolically generated CO2 and the future goal is to enable conversion of separated CO2 to O2 to close the gap in the air-water chemical cycle.
