Columbia University engineers make breakthrough in understanding electroreduction of CO2 for conversion to electrofuels

Green Car Congress

Recent research in electrocatalytic CO 2 conversion points the way to using CO 2 as a feedstock and renewable electricity as an energy supply for the synthesis of different types of fuel and value-added chemicals such as ethylene, ethanol, and propane. Understanding the nature of the first reaction intermediate is a critical step toward commercialization of the electrocatalytic CO 2 conversion to useful chemicals.

Researchers develop efficient single-atom Ni catalyst for conversion of CO2 to CO

Green Car Congress

A competing reaction, called the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) or “water splitting,” takes precedence over the CO 2 conversion reaction. In addition to the unique energetic properties of single atoms, the O 2 conversation reaction was facilitated by the interaction of the nickel atoms with a surrounding sheet of graphene. However, we found the individual nickel atoms were distributed uniformly, which accounted for the excellent performance of the conversion reaction.
