Dismantling of Carbon Dioxide
« on: October 04, 2007, 01:11:20 PM »
Is there anyone who know any chemical reaction which dismantle Carbon Dioxide? I'm not interested in Photosynthesis reaction but in artificial reaction which can achieve the dismantling of he Carbon Dioxide (including requiered temperature and pressure).

dismantling???

you mean to use CO2 as a reagent? Or to reduce CO2, or... ?


Anyway, I have heard of tests using CO2 in a solar cell type way to make longer hydrocarbon chains, like mimicking photosynthesis. But other processes are tedious as carbon dioxide is the very stable most oxidised form of a single carbon "chain".
Electrochemical carbon dioxide reduction tests are also taking place, but to the best of my knowledge, no easy commercialised process is available yet.
Aside from photosynth.

Thanks for your response.
I meant to use CO2 as reagent and by then decreasing it's quantity.

Thanks.
This is excatly what I was looking for.
By the way, any idea in which temperature the carbon dioxide start to react ?
