Reversible interconversion of carbon dioxide and formate by an electroactive enzyme

Reda, Torsten; Plugge, Caroline M; Abram, Nerilie; Hirst, Judy

Description

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a kinetically and thermodynamically stable molecule. It is easily formed by the oxidation of organic molecules, during combustion or respiration, but is difficult to reduce. The production of reduced carbon compounds from CO2 is an attractive proposition, because carbon-neutral energy sources could be used to generate fuel resources and sequester CO2 from the atmosphere. However, available methods for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 require excessive overpotentials...[Show more]
