A surface oxidised Fe-S catalyst for the liquid phase hydrogenation of CO₂
Abstract
© The Royal Society of Chemistry 2020. Rapidly increasing anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, coupled with irreversible climate change and depleting fossil fuel reserves, have significantly increased the drive for CO2utilisation. Iron sulfide as a catalyst for the hydrogenation of CO2has been discussed in the literature for decades, especially in an origin-of-life context, but little experimental evidence exists in the literature for its feasibility. Here we report the catalytic properties of pyrrhotite (Fe1−xS) for the hydrogenation of CO2into formate. Advanced material characterisation methods in combination with computational studies have allowed us to identify surface S-Fe-O moieties as active sites for the reaction.
