Second that emulsion: For the first time the utilization of a metal complex leads to the formation of water-in-scCO2 microemulsions. Such a microemulsion provides a promising route for in situ CO2 reduction to produce formic acid at the water/scCO2 interface, in a process that provides a high efficiency, adjustable activity, and easy product and catalyst separation.
