Converting CO2 into a valuable energy carrier using a model In2O3 catalyst

Converting CO2 into a valuable energy carrier using a model In2O3 catalyst

New discoveries made possible by In Situ TEM gas and heating. The direct hydrogenation of CO2 to methanol shows promise to be an important technique to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and thereby mitigate the negative effects of climate change while producing an important energy carrier. In his contribution to this article, Dr. Xing Huang has used In Situ TEM techniques to assess the limits of In2O3 catalytic performance in CO2 hydrogenation.

Interview with Prof. Rafal Dunin-Borkowski, Director of Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons in Jülich

We interviewed Prof. Rafal Dunin-Borkowski, Director of Ernst Ruska-Centre (ER-C) for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons in Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany. We talked about his road to ER-C, his research into more energy-efficient electronic devices, the growing importance of software and data analysis and the need for automation to improve the measurement of weak signals.
