A team at Waseda University in Japan has discovered a new material that can convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into a useful resource at temperatures below 500 ℃. They used the newly discovered cu-in2o3 to carry out reverse water gas conversion reaction through chemical cycle, and effectively converted CO2 to carbon monoxide (CO) at a high speed of 10 mmol / g / h at a temperature below 500 ℃. Various analyses show that the reaction on cu-in2o3 originates from the redox reaction between cu-in2o3 and Cu in alloy.
