CO2 capture and conversion
Guest edited by Elena Shevchenko, Ah-Hyung Alissa Park, Shouheng Sun and Tierui Zhang
We are delighted to introduce a new online collection published in Nanoscale on carbon dioxide capture and conversion, featuring exciting exciting research on advanced nanoscale materials and reactions!
Understanding CO2 capture and conversion has been essential in our efforts to build a carbon neutral/negative society and to achieve energy sustainability. Recent studies have shown that CO2 can be captured from industry waste in more energy efficient manners and be converted more selectively via various catalytic processes to reusable chemicals and fuels. This collection focuses on theoretical and experimental CO2 capture and reduction through thermochemical, electrochemical, photochemical, photo/electrocatalytic, biological and inorganic carbonate-based approaches, and aims to collect the latest state-of-the-art progress made in CO2 capture and conversion into a single online collection.
The guest editors, Professor Elena Shevchenko (Argonne National Laboratory, USA), Professor A.-H. Alissa Park (Columbia University, USA), Professor Shouheng Sun (Brown University, USA) and Professor Tierui Zhang (Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China), introduce this collection in their editorial.
All articles in the collection are free to access until the end of March 2023. Read some of the featured articles below.
