Abstract

A novel method of water splitting for CO2 reduction into methanol was proposed by directly using commercially available and non-precious Al and Cu powder as a reductant and catalyst, respectively. A 22% yield of methanol was obtained from CO2. This technique is simple and environmentally friendly, and also provides an example of a multitude of possible chemical reactions for CO2 conversion.
