Repurposing a Bio-Inspired NiFe Hydrogenase Model for CO2Reduction with Selective Production of Methane as the Unique C-Based Product


This publication reports the unprecedented reactivity of a molecular electrocatalyst physiadsorbed on a graphite electrode: a bioinspired Ni(II)Fe(II) complex selectively and catalytically reduces CO2 in acidic aqueous solution to produce a mixture of CH4 and H2.
