Special Issue Information Carbon dioxide is a major “greenhouse effect” gas, and is also an abundant, environmentally friendly renewable C1 resource. Chemical transformation of CO2 allows its fixation and production of value-added fuels, commodity chemicals, and degradable polymers. Therefore, its utilization has received wide attention and research interest.
CO2 reduction to produce value-added fuels and chemicals is an effective way for its utilization, which mainly includes the following three aspects. 1) Thermally catalytic hydrogenation of CO2 to alcohols, acids, and alkanes, has been widely explored; 2) CO2 reduction powered by electricity or solar energy using water as hydrogen resource, which can address the origin of hydrogen, is a focus of hot topic; 3) CO2 can also be used to generate fine chemicals via carbonylation and methylation.
In this special issue, we invite researchers from all over the world to report their recent advances on CO2 reduction. The purpose of this special issue is to provide important scientific understanding and technology guidance for CO2 transformation to value-added fuels and compounds, and offer new ideas for CO2 utilization. Manuscripts from different related fields are welcome.
Submission Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.whxb.pku.edu.cn/journalx_wlhx_en/authorLogOn.action. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles, communications and perspectives are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office (email@example.com) for announcement on this website. Manuscripts written in English or Chinese can be accepted.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. We do not charge any fees from authors.
