The electrochemical reduction of CO2 to CO is a reaction of central importance for sustainable energy conversion and storage. Herein, structure–activity relationships of a series of imidazolium-based cocatalysts for this reaction are described, which demonstrate that the C4- and C5-protons on the imidazolium ring are vital for efficient catalysis. Further investigation of these findings led to the discovery of new imidazolium salts, which show superior activity as cocatalysts for the reaction, i.e., CO is selectively produced at significantly lower overpotentials with nearly quantitative faradaic yields for CO.

Pyrazolium ionic liquids (Pz ILs) were employed as co-catalysts for electrochemical conversion of CO2 to CO on a silver disk electrode, leading to a significant decrease in the onset potential for the reduction (ca. 500 mV). The electrochemical conversion of CO2 to CO proceeds in acetonitrile-based electrolytes containing Pz IL co-catalysts with Faradaic efficiencies (FEs) of nearly ...

Electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2RR) is promoted by ionic liquid (IL) co-catalysts, and several mechanisms have been proposed to explain their role. Due to the complexity of the CO2RR and the limited number of active IL co-catalysts, a consensus on the precise role of ILs has not been reached, and it is not possible ...

A polymeric ionic liquid catalyst for the N-formylation and N-methylation of amines using CO2/PhSiH3
, , et al., Journal of CO2 Utilization 2020 Vol. 41 P. 101240
We describe a polymeric ionic liquid (PIL) derived from trimethyl(p-vinylbenzyl)ammonium chloride ([VBTAm]Cl) that efficiently catalyzes the N-formylation of amines employing CO2 and PhSiH3 at room temperature with low catalyst loadings in near-quantitative yield. Under more forcing conditions N-methylated products can be selectively obtained. The PIL catalyst can be easily recovered and reused repeatedly without a decrease in activity. The ...

, , et al., ChemSusChem 2019 Vol. 12 No. 8 P. 1635-1639
Deep eutectic solvents (DESs) were applied to the electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR). Choline‐based DESs represent a non‐toxic and inexpensive alternative to room‐temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) as additives to the system or as electrolyte. Following the study on choline‐based DESs this approach was generalized and simple and organic‐soluble systems were devised based on the combination of ...
