Photoreduction of CO2 using [Ru(bpy)2(CO)L]n+ catalysts in biphasic solution/supercritical CO2 systems.


The reduction of CO2 in a biphasic liquid-condensed gas system was investigated as a function of the CO2 pressure. Using 1-benzyl-1,4-dihydronicotinamide (BNAH) as sacrificial electron donor dissolved in a dimethylformamide-water mixture and [Ru(bpy)2(CO)L](n+) as a catalyst and [Ru(bpy)3](2+) as a photosensitizer, the reaction was found to produce a… (More)
