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.

    Outside the BOx: The enhancement of the electrochemical activity toward oxygen reduction reaction with the addition of an enzyme (bilirubin oxidase, BOx) to a platinum group metal-free (PGM-free) catalyst is shown. The influence of chemistry and morphology of the PGM-free materials is found to have an impact in the level of enhancement of the hybrid catalyst.

    Finding active catalytic species: An in situ generated cobalt catalyst efficiently conducts photo- and electrochemical water oxidation under near-neutral conditions. This work sheds light upon the ability to directly assemble molecular metal–organic catalyst films on the surface of different conducting electrodes for the potential molecular engineering of cobalt-based electrocatalytic films.

    Electrochemistry: The performance stability of directly assembled La cobaltites can be significantly enhanced by forming a composite electrode or by replacing La with Sm. This study demonstrates the new opportunities in the design and development of intermediate-temperature solid oxide fuel cells based on the directly assembled high-performance and durable Sr-free cobaltite-based perovskite cathodes.
