Study of CO2 electroreduction in ionic liquids at gold and copper electrodes

  • Project Description

    To overcome the problems encountered in aqueous media, CO2 electro-reduction (ERC) is being studied in ionic liquid media. The use of these unconventional media not only makes it possible to solubilize more CO2 than the aqueous medium but also suppresses the competitive reaction of the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). The present work consists in the study of the reduction reaction of CO2 in different ionic liquids at gold and copper electrodes. The influence of the nature of the ionic liquid on the electrocatalytic performance is examined by the use of RTILs made up of cations of different nature and of the same anion.
