The alcohol-mediated reduction of CO2 and NaHCO3 into formate: a hydrogen transfer reduction of NaHCO3 with glycerine under alkaline hydrothermal conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

A hydrothermal method for the hydrogen-transfer reduction of CO2 or NaHCO3 is presented. This process uses glycerine as a reducing agent, which is ultimately converted to lactate, and can convert NaHCO3 into formate in about a 90% yield with respect to the initial amount of glycerine.
