We are delighted to announce that the Green Chemistry themed issue CO2 Utilisation is now online and free to access until the end of August 2021.
The massive consumption of fossil fuels, among other human activities, has released substantial amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, provoking both global warming and dramatic climate changes. As such, carbon dioxide capture, removal and utilisation continues to attract significant attention. As an ideal carbon source, efficient transformation of CO2 enables the sustainable synthesis of high value-added chemicals and fuels.
Guest Edited by Professor Da-Gang Yu and Professor Liangnian He, this collection reviews the very recent achievements of CO2 utilisation in various areas of green and sustainable chemistry.
