Experiments were carried out to synthesize and characterize a structure H clathrate hydrate containing CO2 and 3,3-dimethyl-2-butanone (pinacolone) by means of phase equilibrium and powder X-ray diffraction measurements. Molecular dynamics simulations of this structure H hydrate were performed to understand the nature of guest-host molecular interactions.
