Carbon dioxide conversion over nanostructured mixed metal catalysts

  • Chaffee, Alan (Primary Chief Investigator (PCI))
  • Bhargava, Suresh (Chief Investigator (CI))

Project: Research

Project Description

This project will develop a range of novel nanostructured catalysts based on mixed noble metals and investigate their use for converting carbon dioxide into useful chemicals. These nanocatalysts are expected to simultaneously lower reaction energy barriers and improve yields and selectivities leading to improved process efficiencies that will impact on carbon dioxide management strategies in fossil fuel intensive industries.
