Title: Tuning Selectivity of CO 2 Hydrogenation Reactions at the Metal/Oxide Interface

Abstract

The chemical transformation of CO 2 not only mitigates the anthropogenic CO 2 emission into the Earth’s atmosphere but also produces carbon compounds that can be used as precursors for the production of chemicals and fuels. The activation and conversion of CO 2 can be achieved on multifunctional catalytic sites available at the metal/oxide interface by taking advantage of the synergy between the metal nanoparticles and oxide support. In this paper, we look at the recent progress in mechanistic studies of CO 2 hydrogenation to C1 (CO, CH 3OH, and CH 4) compounds on metal/oxide catalysts. On this basis, we are able to provide a better understanding of the complex reaction network, grasp the capability of manipulating structure and combination of metal and oxide at the interface in tuning selectivity, and identify the key descriptors to control the activity and, in particular, the selectivity of catalysts. In conclusion, we also discuss challenges and future research opportunities for tuning the selective conversion of CO 2 on metal/oxide catalysts.
