The group of ZENG Jie at Hefei’s University of Science and Technology of China (CAS) has come up with a novel catalyst based on CdS alloy nanorods which at a – 1.2 V overpotential can convert CO2 to carbon monoxide/hydrogen ratios freely adjustable between 4:1 and 1:4, at current densities of more than 25 mA/cm2. The catalyst remained stable after continuous operation of over 10 hrs.
