In a new study, detailed in the Journal of American Chemical Society, scientists described how a visible light-activated and single-site catalyst can convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into key molecules that can be used for making useful chemicals. The discovery reveals the possibility to convert greenhouse gas into hydrocarbon fuels, using sunlight. To find out details of the efficient reaction, the scientists used single ion of cobalt and National Synchrotron Light Source

Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) in collaboration with Fraunhofer Umsicht in Oberhausen and Fritz-Haber Institute Berlin have made new discoveries about ‘mineral pentlandite’ as a potential and cheap catalyst for carbon dioxide recycling. The findings of the study were published in the recent issue of the journal Chemical Science, where the researchers explained why pentlandite should be considered as a possible alternative to precious metal catalysts. Previously, pentlandite was used as a
