Halide-induced lattice disorder could hold key for enhanced CO2-to-formate conversion

In a Carbon Capture Science & Technology pre-proof, scientists in China report encouraging results in the conversion of CO2 to formate under neutral condition by applying halide-induced lattice disorder in bismuth nanosheets, with potential benefits for utilizing CO2.

Selected sections of the article state that:

“Electrocatalytic CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR), which could produce a variety of useful chemicals including CO, HCOOH, C2H4, C2H5OH and so on, has been regarded as one of the most promising routes to store the intermittent renewable energy and alleviate environmental problems caused by excessive CO2 emission.”

“Recently, Bi-based electrocatalysts have emerged as good candidates in selective HCOOH production for their low toxicity and high abundance.”

“Briefly, this work depicted the mechanism of halide ions in the regulation of electronic structure, hence promoting the industrialization of formate production.”
