Development of Cu/M-C electrocatalysts for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 to hydrocarbons and alcohols

The development of energy-efficient catalysts for the electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR) to CO and ethylene has reached several critical milestones recently, making industrial implementation of the technique more relevant than ever before. Within this scope, we investigate an important class of non-noble metals as potential industrial electrocatalysts for the selective conversion of CO2 to ethylene and alcohols, namely carbon-supported copper-based electrodes (Cu/M-C).
