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

Green Car Congress

An international research team has developed a new single-atom electrocatalyst that efficiently converts CO 2 to carbon monoxide (CO). Scientists have long sought a way to convert CO 2 to CO, but traditional electrocatalysts cannot effectively initiate the reaction. A competing reaction, called the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) or “water splitting,” takes precedence over the CO 2 conversion reaction. Carbon Capture and Conversion (CCC) Catalysts
