Oxygen enrichment and separation from air are needed for medical, industrial and power generation purposes. The specific energy consumption of these separation processes should be decreased. In this work experimental and theoretical methods are used to develop new technique for small or medium scale production of pure oxygen or oxygen enriched air at room temperature. The approach is an "artificial lungs" system, where a solution containing oxygen carrier molecules acts as a selective mediator for oxygen. The task of oxygen carriers is to selectively adsorb oxygen from the air and release it to a closed space or vessel.
