ABSTRACT
The article reports that researchers, led by Markus Antonietti at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces in Germany, have revealed a way of cleaving the carbon dioxide bonds using graphitic carbon nitride as a catalyst. Antonietti's team worked with nitrogen-rich catalysts, trying to emulate photosynthesis, which naturally breaks down carbon dioxide in plants via its reaction with nitrogen to form carbamates as intermediates.
