Title: Determining the coordination environment and electronic structure of polymer-encapsulated cobalt phthalocyanine under electrocatalytic CO 2 reduction conditions using in situ X-Ray absorption spectroscopy

Abstract

In situ X-ray absorbance spectroscopy measurements show that encapsulating cobalt phthalocyanine within coordinating polymers leads to axial ligation of Co and results in enhanced rates for electrocatalytic CO 2 reduction.
