Enhanced Catalytic Activity of Cobalt Porphyrin in CO2 Electroreduction Upon Immobilization on Carbon Materials

Xin-Ming Hu, Magnus H. Rønne, Steen U. Pedersen, Troels Skrydstrup and Kim Daasbjerg doi.org/10.1002/anie.201701104 In a comparative study of the electrocatalytic CO2 reduction, cobalt meso-tetraphenylporphyrin (CoTPP) is used as a model molecular catalyst under both homogeneous and heterogeneous conditions. In the former case, employing N,N-dimethylformamide as solvent, CoTPP performs poorly as an electrocatalyst giving low…

Review: Bipolar electrochemistry—A wireless approach for electrode reactions

Line Koefoed, Steen U. Pedersen and Kim Daasbjerg doi.org/10.1016/j.coelec.2017.02.001 Bipolar electrochemistry involving two feeder electrodes and a conducting object (the bipolar electrode) in an electrolytic solution has attracted a renewed interest in the last two decades due to its use within several fields ranging from materials science to sensing and beyond. The potential difference between…
