Magnesium oxide anchored into a hollow carbon sphere realizes synergistic adsorption and activation of CO2 for electrochemical reduction

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the synergistic adsorption and activation of CO2 by using magnesium oxide anchored into a hollow carbon sphere (MgO/HCS) as an efficient catalyst for electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ERC). The MgO/HCS catalyst exhibits a high selectivity for CO production with a faradaic efficiency of 81.7% at −1.0 V VS. RHE and a partial current density (PCD) of 16.7 mA cm−2 in aqueous electrolyte.
