UT Arlington researchers use polyaniline to split CO2 into alcohols

Researchers at The University of Texas at Arlington have been the first to demonstrate that polyaniline (PANI), a member of the organic conducting polymer family, is a promising photocathode material for the conversion of carbon dioxide into alcohol fuels without the need for a co-catalyst. This opens up a new field of research into new applications for inexpensive, readily available organic semiconducting polymers within solar fuel cells.
