Genetic algorithm can rapidly pinpoint top candidates for pre-combustion carbon capture

In recent years, a class of highly absorbent, nanoporous materials called metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have emerged as a promising material for carbon capture in power plants. But finding the optimal MOF to do the best job is another story.
