This thesis reports the synthesis of catalysts that can convert CO2 to valuable chemicals with high efficiency using electricity and the investigation of the catalytic mechanism behind this reaction to enable design of better catalysts. The ultimate goal is to develop a cost-effective approach to utilise CO2. In this way, the greenhouse effect caused by excess CO2 emission can be minimised and a more sustainable energy system can be established in the future.
