Surface functionalization with thiols: a novel strategy in catalyst design for the efficient reduction of CO2 to C2 products

Project description

Novel catalysts help turn CO2 into fuel and chemicals

Catalysts are essential components of chemical reactions, both those occurring in nature and those engineered for applications. Without them, many reactions would not proceed or would do so at rates so slow that they would be rendered useless. Electrocatalytic conversion of CO2 to other chemicals is one of these reactions. It is an important way to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and foster a circular economy, but the current catalysts are highly inefficient. The EU-funded STRATCAT-CO2 project will develop techniques to enhance the catalytic conversion of CO2 to ethanol and ethylene, a key fuel and a chemical building block, respectively.
