Emissions of carbon dioxide dramatically reduced in new chemical production process

Chemists at Utrecht University have managed to utilise cobalt as a catalyst for the production of basic chemicals from natural gas. In doing so, they have reduced the carbon dioxide emissions in a vital step of the chemical conversion process from 50 per cent to almost zero. Nature Communications published the findings by the group of inorganic chemists led by Krijn de Jong. Read more on the website of Utrecht University.
