How Polymer Coatings Could Help Accelerate CO2 Conversion

Catalysts are perhaps the most important element when it comes to conversion of CO2 to fuels, chemicals and materials. Is there any wonder that an enormous amount of research is happening within the catalyst domain?

While there are efforts to discover new and more efficient catalysts, there are also parallel researches on what could be added to existing catalysts to make them perform better and faster. 

Recently, researchers from the University of Tsukuba in Japan created a polymer coating that, when applied to a standard metal catalyst, dramatically accelerates the electrochemical CO2 conversion.
