10:44 AM MST | February 4, 2014 | Francinia Protti-Alvarez

A team of researchers at the University of Delaware (Newark, DE) has developed a highly selective catalyst capable of electrochemically converting carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon monoxide with 92% efficiency. The carbon monoxide then can be used to develop useful chemicals, the university says. The researchers found that when they used a nanoporous silver electrocatalyst, it was 3,000 times more active than polycrystalline silver, a catalyst commonly used in converting CO2 to useful chemicals. Silver is considered a promising material for a CO2 reduction...
