It's the water: Water enhances CO2 reduction rates when using a mixed ionic liquid (EMIM TFA)/water matrix to facilitate the conversion of CO2 into formate on indium electrodes. Addition of greater amounts of water lowers the overpotential for the reduction of CO2 as well as increases the rate of CO2 reduction as shown by the linear sweep voltammograms (see picture).
