Abstract

This article reviews recent progress in the exploitation of carbon dioxide as a chemical feedstock. In particular, the design and development of molecular complexes that can act as catalysts for the electrochemical reduction of CO2 is highlighted, and compared to other biological, metal- and non-metal-based systems.
