Global research efforts are advancing technologies to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into essential industrial resources. While experiments with heterogeneous electrocatalysts were common, there was a notable absence of trials using more efficient homogeneous catalysts under industrially relevant conditions.

A team led by MRD members Kevinjeorjios Pellumbi and Prof. Dr. Ulf-Peter Apfel from Ruhr University Bochum and Fraunhofer UMSICHT in Oberhausen have filled this gap, as highlighted in the journal "Cell Press Physical Science". The goal of their work is to push the technical limits to establish an efficient technology for CO2 conversion that turns the climate-harming gas into a valuable resource.
