A bimetallic single atom catalyst enhances the efficiency and selectivity of CO2 reduction reaction

The use of a double-metal catalyst, presenting nearby nickel and iron active sites, improves both efficiency and selectivity of the carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction reaction, a process increasingly used to diminish the concentration of this greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. This study, published in and highlighted on the cover of Energy & Environmental Science, has been led by ICN2 group leader Prof. Jordi Arbiol.
