Catalyzing the Conversion of Carbon Waste


Amidst the current climate crisis, carbon waste has become a mainstream issue, and the conversion of CO2 into various fuels via electrocatalysis has emerged as a potential solution. Over the past decade, scientists have produced many unique catalytic systems that can reduce carbon dioxide and generate liquid products.

At Rice Univ., researchers have found a way to use electrocatalysis to turn CO2 into formic acid (HCOOH), a compound that can be used to power fuel cells. Formic acid is also an important feedstock for other chemicals, and it can be used to store hydrogen efficiently...
