The electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide on a lead electrode was studied in aqueous medium. Preliminary investigations carried out by cyclic voltammetry were used to determine the optimized conditions of electrolysis. They revealed that the CO2 reduction process was enhanced at a pH value of 8.6 for the cathodic solution i.e. when the predominant form of CO2 was hydrogenocarbonate ion. Long-term electrolysis was carried out using both potentiometry and amperometry methods in a filter… 

Electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide into formate

The electrochemical reduction of CO dioxide into HCOO on a Sn cathode is well described in literature. However, the issue of deactivation and loss of Sn and a suitable non-aqueous supporting

Efficient Reduction of CO2 into Formic Acid on a Lead or Tin Electrode using an Ionic Liquid Catholyte Mixture.

Addition of a small amount of H2 O to an ionic liquid/acetonitrile electrolyte mixture significantly enhanced the efficiency of the electrochemical reduction of CO2 into formic acid (HCOOH) on a Pb or Sn electrode, and the efficiency was extremely high using an ionics liquid/ACetonitriles/H2 O ternary mixture.
