On the road to artificial photosynthesis: Study reveals key catalytic factors in carbon dioxide reduction

On the road to artificial photosynthesis: Study reveals key catalytic factors in carbon dioxide reduction | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
The excessive atmospheric carbon dioxide that is driving global climate change could be harnessed into a renewable energy technology that would be a win for both the environment and the economy. That is the lure of artificial photosynthesis in which the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide is used to produce clean, green and sustainable fuels. However, finding a catalyst for reducing carbon dioxide that is highly selective and efficient has proven to be a huge scientific challenge. New ex
