Soaking Up Carbon Dioxide and Turning it into Valuable Products

Chris-and-Omar-COF-porphyrinChris Chang (Chemical Sciences) and Omar Yaghi (Materials Sciences) led a study in which covalent organic frameworks were embedded with cobalt porphyrins to produce a molecular system that that not only absorbs carbon dioxide, but also selectively reduces it to carbon monoxide, a primary building block for a wide range of chemical products.
