Catalysis, solar energy, renewable fuels, indium oxide
The need to pursue renewable, carbon neutral forms of energy has led to a far reaching-research effort to generate and store solar energy. It has been shown that indium oxide-based catalysts have the potential to reduce carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide or even continue reduction to methanol. Recent advances and current challenges in further developing indium oxide catalysis as a means of producing a sustainable liquid fuel supply will be addressed. This project will give an overview of the research in indium oxide catalysts for solar fuels generation and the immediate relevance of recent work within the Bussell Research Group in Western’s Chemistry Department.
