Design of cost-efficient and photocatalytically active Zn-based MOFs decorated with Cu2O nanoparticles for CO2 methanation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here we show for the first time a MOF that is photocatalytically active for light-assisted CO2 methanation under mild conditions (215 °C) without the inclusion of metallic nanoparticles or any sacrificial agent. The presence of Cu2O nanoparticles causes a 50% increase in the photocatalytic activity. This result paves the way for developing efficient and cost-effective materials for CO2 elimination.
