Frustrated Lewis pair-mediated fixation of CO2 within a metal-organic framework

Abstract

Finding pragmatic solutions to curb the accumulation of atmospheric CO2 and tackle the associated greenhouse effect is challenging. Herein, we demonstrate the use of an in-situ formed frustrated Lewis pairs (FLP) within a metal-organic framework (MOF) to effectively hydrogenate CO2 to methoxide at a relatively low temperature and pressure. The work presents a step toward the discovery of practical catalysts for CO2 reduction and conversion.
