Chinese researchers develop new process for producing electrochemicals from CO2

April 15, 2020 |

In China, a research team from the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) proposed a new strategy for improving the catalytic activity of transition metal catalysts for CO2 electrocatalytic reduction.

The researchers found that directly coating the amino-functionalized carbon layer can effectively regulate the electronic structure of the non-precious metal catalyst SnS.

This approach would accelerate the electron conduction efficiency and enhance the adsorption energies of OCHO and CO2, increasing the reaction current density and formate production. The related findings were published in Advanced Energy Materials.
