Size dependent selectivity of Cu nano-octahedra catalysts for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 to CH4

Author affiliations

Abstract

Octahedral Cu nanocrystals in the size range of 75–310 nm are synthesized and investigated for electrochemical CO2 reduction. The smallest nanocrystals show the best selectivity for CO2, particularly methane, which is explained by geometric effects.
