Abstract

Homoleptic terpyridine complexes of first row transition metals are evaluated as catalysts for the electrocatalytic reduction of CO2. Ni and Co-based catalytic systems are shown to reduce CO2 to CO under the conditions tested. The Ni complex was found to exhibit selectivity for CO2 over proton reduction while the Co-based system generates mixtures of CO and H2 with CO : H2 ratios being tuneable through variation of the applied potential.
