The present invention relates to methods for analysis of carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption into a liquid enhanced by the presence of a compound that accelerates the absorption reaction resulting in a more rapid pH change in the liquid than in the absence of the compound. The present invention also relates to catalyst solutions comprising a carbonic anhydrase and a buffer effective in enhancing CO2 absorption. The present invention further relates to improved compositions and methods for carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption using a zinc additive.
