Design of Cost-Efficient and Photocatalytically Active Zn-Based MOFs Decorated with Cu2O Nanoparticles for CO2 Methanation

submitted on 06.08.2019 and posted on 06.08.2019 by María Cabrero-Antonino, Sonia Remiro-Buenamañana, Manuel Souto, Antonio A. García- Valdivia, Duane Choquesillo-Lazarte, Sergio Navalón, Antonio Rodriguez-Diéguez, Guillermo Minguez Espallargas, Hemenegildo García
Here we show for the first time a MOF that is photocatalytically
active for the light-assisted CO2 methanation at mild conditions
(215 °C) without the inclusion of metallic nanoparticles or any
sacrificial agent. The presence of Cu2O nanoparticles causes a 50 % increase in the photocatalytic activity. These results pave the way to developping efficient and cost-effective materials for CO2 elimination.
