CO2 Capture, Concentration, and Conversion

Addressing the rising levels of anthropogenic CO2 in our atmosphere is a major scientific challenge. The Yang group has focused on capture, concentration and conversion of CO2 using electrochemical techniques. The seminar will discuss thermodynamic considerations for electrochemical CO2 reduction, including considerations for designing selective and low overpotential transition metal…
