CO2, which is thermodynamically stable and a primary greenhouse-gas, is repeatedly exchanged between land, atmosphere, and ocean through the “Carbon Cycle.” Due to fossil fuel combustion, Anthropogenic CO2 concentrations are increasing, resulting in a global change and a range of environmental problems. CO2 sequestration and storage (CSS) were implemented across the globe to mitigate climatic fluctuations. But due to an increased amount of captured CO2, recycling and conversion of CO2 were preferred over the CSS.
Researchers across the globe have used different strategies to convert CO2. The activity, stability, and efficiency of catalysts used for CO2 conversions vary depending on the conditions. The conversion of CO2 gives a wide range of valuable organic products that can be used as raw materials. Insilico designing of Catalyst is cost-effective, and also, can be easily tweaked. Designing superior catalysts with good activity, durability, and improving its performance is the objective of this proposal.
