Photocarboxylation with CO2: an appealing and sustainable strategy for CO2 fixation

Author affiliations

Abstract

With the increasing awareness of sustainable chemistry and green chemistry, photochemical CO2 fixation has drawn more and more attention in response to the need for renewable C1 resources and inexhaustible clean energy resources. It is appealing to provide carboxylic acids and derivatives using CO2 as a renewable feedstock, which is widely used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, dyes and other fine chemicals. Classifying them by the types of reaction sites, this review presents an overview of the recent advances and achievements in the photocarboxylation of C(sp3)–X (X = H, N) bonds, C(sp2)–X (X = H, N, (pseudo)halide) bonds and C(sp)–H bonds with CO2, with an emphasis on the mechanistic aspects of the reactions and a perspective on their future prospects, hopefully stimulating the further research and development of this appealing field.
