How to capture and convert CO2 from a smokestack in a single step

Using a novel catalyst, a single chemical assembly (UiO-66-P-BF2) could capture CO2 and also transform it and hydrogen into formic acid (HCOOH) via a two-step (yellow arrows) reaction (credit: Ye and Johnson/ACS Catalysis) University of Pittsburgh researchers have invented (in computations) a cheap, efficient catalyst that would capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from coal-burning power plants before it reaches the atmosphere and converts the CO2  into formic acid — a valuable chemical that would create a…
