The formation of CO2 hydrate in this work was experimentally investigated using a high pressure volumetric analyzer (HPVA). The investigations in pure CO2 gas systems (at 275 K and 36 bar) highlighted the effect of bed height on CO2 hydrate formation by employing standard silica gel and zeolite 13X as porous mediums. The CO2 uptake of zeolite 13X saturated with 5.6 mol % tetrahydrofuran and 0.01 mol % sodium dodecyl sulfate (zeolite 13X-5) increased from 0 to 0.58 mmol of CO2 per g of H2O when the bed height was reduced from 3 to 2 cm.
