Environmental engineering professor Baikun Li and her 12-person team have been researching electrochemical carbon dioxide reduction, and their findings were recently published in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Energy and Environmental Science Journal. Their work aims to understand the mechanisms of this chemical reaction, its potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and more.
“The broad impact of this methodology doesn’t only apply to CO2 reduction,” Li says. “It has countless applications, but we used CO2 reduction as an example of how we can use quantum level modeling for potential future research.”
