Project TItle: Solar Energy Induced Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide.
The unrestrained CO2 emission in the atmosphere is credited to be the major contributor to greenhouse effect and as a result, global warming. In an effort to mitigate such challenges, the project aims to establish inexpensive and efficient CO2 reduction electrocatalysts to produce useful fuels such as carbon monoxide, methane, formate and methanol. The project also attempts to integrate sustainable energy source such as solar cell system for generating the electricity to drive the reaction.
