Abstract

Density functional theory studies demonstrate that defective graphene-supported Cu nanoparticles can modify the structural and electronic properties of copper for enhancing electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) into hydrocarbon fuels (CH4, CO, and HCOOH). We not only provide improved understanding of CO2 conversion mechanisms on both Cu and the Cu nanoparticle system, but also explain a key factor for enhanced CO2 conversion. A promising catalytic material for CO 2 conversion into hydrocarbon fuels may allow for geometry flexibility upon interaction with a key intermediate of CHO*. This journal is
