From climate killer to fuels and polymers

Nat. Comm.: Converting the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into a useful chemical would be highly desirable. However, the catalysts available to date have not been efficient enough.

Researchers have discovered a catalyst that performs highly selective conversion of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into ethylene – an important source material for the chemical industry. In the journal “Nature Communications”, a team headed by Prof Dr Beatriz Roldan Cuenya from Ruhr-Universität Bochum describes how plasma-treated copper can be used for this purpose.
