Catalytic strategies for the reduction of C-O bonds in CO2


With 95 % of organic chemical commodities deriving from fossil resources, the chemical industry is currently exploring novel and renewable carbon feedstocks for the production of both bulk and fine chemicals.[1] In this context, the utilization of CO2 or products derived from biomass wastes is an attractive strategy to access value-added products. Because these carbon sources feature carbon atoms in an oxidized state, the development of reduction methods is needed and they call for the design of efficient catalysts able to break strong C−O and C=O bonds. The presentation will focus on describing how the capture and utilization of CO2 (CCU) can help deliver efficient services in an energy system, which features an increasing portion of renewable energies. The challenges and opportunities underpinning the transformation of CO2 to fine and bulk chemicals will be identified. Recent advances in the field will be discussed and exemplified with recent novel transformations enabling the use of CO2 as a C1-building block for the formation of amines, amides, esters, etc. [2,3]
