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

LETTER: 8-year-old pleads for action on global warming | via @EcoInternet3

To the editor:People are destroying our planet with global warming and it needs to stop! Every time you turn on a car or use a power plant it pollutes the air and makes more global warming.Why do you think ice caps are melting and ocean is rising? Puerto Rico might be underwater by the time I grow up. Polar bears are dying because they live on ice caps and ice caps are melting!Tesla’s are electric cars, which means they don’t use gas. That is good because gas pollutes the air.
