Interfacial Photoreduction of Supercritical CO2 by an Aqueous Catalyst
Not just a solvent anymore: CO2 reduction under supercritical conditions was achieved in a biphasic water–supercritical CO2 system using an aqueous soluble catalyst (see picture). The introduction of such an interface provides a suitable reaction medium where adsorption, CO2 binding, and protonation of intermediates are intimately linked.
