Brief description This project aims to develop ionic liquid-based nanoporous composite catalysts for efficient electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide into value-added chemicals and fuels using electricity generated from renewable sources. Novel nanoporous catalysts will be constructed and impregnated with a secondary phase of task-specific ionic liquids to promote carbon dioxide reduction. An expected outcome of the project is an understanding of the fundamental physicochemical and electrochemical behaviour of the nanoconfined ionic liquid/catalyst interfaces which will allow optimisation and enhancement of their properties. This project is expected to contribute to clean energy and sustainable environments.
