  • New way to make a CuPd catalyst for the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to methane
    convert CO2 More information Sheng Zhang et al Polymer supported CuPd nanoalloy as a synergistic catalyst for electrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to methane Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 2015 DOI 10 1073 pnas 1522496112 Abstract Developing sustainable energy strategies based on CO2 reduction is an increasingly important issue given the world s continued reliance on hydrocarbon fuels and the rise in CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere An important option is electrochemical or photoelectrochemical CO2 reduction to carbon fuels We describe here an electrodeposition strategy for preparing highly dispersed ultrafine metal nanoparticle catalysts on an electroactive polymeric film including nanoalloys of Cu and Pd Compared with nanoCu catalysts which are state of the art catalysts for CO2 reduction to hydrocarbons the bimetallic CuPd nanoalloy catalyst exhibits a greater than twofold enhancement in Faradaic efficiency for CO2 reduction to methane The origin of the enhancement is suggested to arise from a synergistic reactivity interplay between Pd H sites and Cu CO sites during electrochemical CO2 reduction The polymer substrate also appears to provide a basis for the local concentration of CO2 resulting in the enhancement of catalytic current densities by threefold The procedure for preparation of the nanoalloy catalyst is straightforward and appears to be generally applicable to the preparation of catalytic electrodes for incorporation into electrolysis devices Journal reference Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 1298 shares feedback to editors 2016 Phys org Tweet Favorites Email Print PDF Featured Last comments Popular Detection of gravitational waves would open new window on universe Feb 10 2016 58 Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein s prediction Feb 11 2016 144 Physicists create first photonic Maxwell s demon 15 hours ago 3 GPS tracking down to the centimeter Feb 11 2016 10 A metal that behaves like water Feb 11 2016 2 more Phys org on facebook Relevant PhysicsForums posts When is ΔH ΔU 6 hours ago Which group has greater steric hindrance Feb 11 2016 Comparison Calibration Method Feb 11 2016 Which compound will be extracted in organic layer Feb 10 2016 Kinetic vs thermodynamics control Feb 10 2016 Electroplating with mixed metal electrodes Feb 10 2016 More from Chemistry Related Stories Hybrid copper gold nanoparticles convert CO2 April 11 2012 Copper the stuff of pennies and tea kettles is also one of the few metals that can turn carbon dioxide into hydrocarbon fuels with relatively little energy When fashioned into an electrode and stimulated with voltage Copper foam turns carbon dioxide into useful chemicals August 12 2014 A catalyst made from a foamy form of copper has vastly different electrochemical properties from catalysts made with smooth copper in reactions involving carbon dioxide a new study shows The research by scientists in Brown On the road to artificial photosynthesis Study reveals key catalytic factors in carbon dioxide reduction September 25 2014 The excessive atmospheric carbon dioxide that is driving global climate change could be harnessed into a renewable energy technology that would be a win for both the
