We investigate the influence of electrolyte composition on the electrochemical reduction of CO2 to CO in an electrochemical flow reactor. Specifically, we study the effect of alkali cations on the partial current densities of the two products: CO and H2 .W e report that the presence of large cations such as cesium and rubidium in the electrolyte improves the partial current density for CO production. Furthermore, large cations suppress H2 evolution, resulting in high faradaic yields for CO… CONTINUE READING
