Aqueous Biphasic Systems for the Synthesis of Formates by Catalytic CO2 Hydrogenation: Integrated Reaction and Catalyst Separation for CO2-Scrubbing Solutions

Scrubs up well: An integrated process for the synthesis of formate–amine adducts based on aqueous biphasic catalysis is presented. The solvent pair methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC)/water led to the most productive system with a ruthenium complex as catalyst. Re-use of the catalyst phase was demonstrated. This approach enables the direct hydrogenation of carbon dioxide in aqueous solutions of monoethanolamine and methyl diethanolamine, as used in carbon capture technologies, with a total turnover number of up to 150 000.

    No time to spare: Timing in the carbon cycle suggests large-scale chemical processes in which CO2 is chemically reduced to fuel within seconds are needed to close the carbon cycle and to avoid the emission of greenhouse gases. This type of cycle, in which CO2 is formed and converted back on the same timescale, is a sustainable solution for achieving a CO2-neutral world.
