Carbon capture is the most probable technology in combating anthropogenic increase of CO2 in the atmosphere. Works on developing emerging absorbents for improving carbon capture performance and reducing process energy consumption are actively going on. The most worked‐on emerging absorbents, including liquid‐liquid biphasic, liquid‐solid biphasic, enzymatic, and encapsulated absorbents, already show encouraging results in improved energy efficiency, enhanced CO2 absorption kinetics, increased cyclic CO2 loading, or reduced regeneration temperature. In this chapter, the latest research and development progress of these emerging absorbents are reviewed along with the future directions in moving these technologies to higher‐technology readiness levels.
