Electrocatalysing a sword into a ploughshare

Funded under: FP6-NEST


In the presence of an electrocatalyst, carbon dioxide can be reduced to useful hydrocarbons. The reaction can take place at room temperature and atmospheric pressure but it is not productive and exploitation is further hampered by rapid deactivation of the catalyst. A consortium of research organisations will explore this reaction and hopes, thereby, to lay the foundations for the advancement of knowledge in the neglected but promising field of electrocatalysed gasphase reactions.
