Atomic origins of high electrochemical CO2 reduction efficiency on nanoporous gold

Author affiliations

Abstract

First principles calculations show that gold atoms with low generalized coordination numbers possess high activity for electroreduction of CO2 to CO. Atom-resolved three-dimensional reconstruction reveals that dealloyed nanoporous gold possesses such a favourable structure characteristic, which results in a faradaic efficiency as high as 94% for CO production.
