Phase 2: transition metals carbides as supporting materials for co and co2 reduction on copper

Descripción

"presently, the majority of the current energy demand is met with fossil fuels, however, because of the rising rising price of energy sources and increasing demand for them, energy production is becoming one of the biggest concerns of modern civilization. co2 into the atmosphere causes negative effects, such as climate change. possible approach to solving this problem is co2 catalytic reduction to higher energy compounds that could be used after combusted, producing energy, or used in fuel cells, releasing carbon dioxide.
