1 ), low cell voltages, and high single-pass CO conversion, leading directly to concentrated product streams. Our results suggest that CO GDE electrolysis is viable for C 2+ synthesis and highlight a substantial advantage of CO over CO 2 GDE electrolysis, where high rates have required low single-pass conversions. Prior to this work, the combination of a high electrolysis rate, high CO conversion, and concentrated product streams had not been achieved.

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.
