Water powered: The electrocatalytic reduction of acetone to isopropanol is achieved with a proton-exchange-membrane (PEM) reactor. The electrolysis of water at the anode of the PEM reactor provides the protons for the reduction of acetone at the cathode. This reaction paves the way for the electrocatalytic reduction of biomass-derived oxygenates to produce electrofuels.
