Sustainable electro-synthesis of esters

National University of Singapore chemists have discovered how acetate esters could be electro-synthesized from water and carbon monoxide in an environmentally sustainable way.

Cu interface matters during CO2 electroreduction

It is attractive to convert CO2 into multicarbon hydrocarbons and oxygenates (C2+ products), but it is challenging to enhance the kinetics of carbon-carbon (C-C) coupling during CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR).
