Validation and applications of Nickel nanoparticle catalysis for hydration of CO2

The data was collected to validate the catalytic activity of nickel nanoparticles (NiNPs) for hydration of CO2. The data shows the catalytic activity of NiNPs using the pH drop method (as used by Mirjafari et al. Ind.Eng.Chem.Res, 2007, 46, 921), under different CO2 partial pressure and at different temperatures. The NiNPs have also been used for two applications, increasing the rate of CO2 absorption in 50 weight percent potassium carbonate solutions and mineralization of CO2 to calcium carbonate.
