Chemical Dissociation Meta Analysis


Determine the energy needed to dissociate CO2 by investigating the relevant parameters and determining their working ranges: pressure, temperature, wavelength, molecular resonance state and include quantum chemical energy calculations.


Conduct a field review of dissociation papers and correlate the following parameters: ionization and dissociation energy levels, wavelengths, and/or wavenumbers from various molecular configurations of CO2 and related ionic species.

Current Google Sheet cataloguing relevant parameters that are correlated with dissociation or near dissociation of CO2.

The current focus is to manually conduct an indepth field review and correlate the dissociation parameters, and conditions to assembly a clustering of all similar parameters and conditions to all known routes to solid carbon.

The initial project scope to use machine learning was deemed unnecessarily difficult given the limited amount of unstructured and noisy training data.
