CO2 electroreduction to ethylene via hydroxide-mediated copper catalysis at an abrupt interface

Ethylene is an important commodity chemical for plastics. It is considered a tractable target for synthesizing renewable resources from carbon dioxide (CO2). The challenge is that the performance of the copper electrocatalysts used for this conversion under the required basic reaction conditions suffers from the competing reaction of CO2 with the base to form bicarbonate. Dinh et al. designed an electrode that tolerates the base by optimizing CO2 diffusion to the catalytic sites (see the Perspective by Ager and Lapkin). This catalyst design delivers 70% efficiency for 150 hours. Science , this issue p. [783][1]; see also p. [707][2] [1]: /lookup/doi/10.1126/science.aas9100 [2]: /lookup/doi/10.1126/science.aat7918
