  • Monash Researcher dreams of converting Carbon Dioxide into Oxygen by Sian Wright
    17 May 2018  | 0 Comments

    Dr Jie Zhang, based at Monash University, hopes to create an electrochemical device that can convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into oxygen, a potential game-changer in the greenhouse gas and climate change debate.  

    Dr Jie Zhang

    The device uses a concept that is drawn from the natural process of photosynthesis that is found in plants and converts CO2 into valuable products such as carbon monoxide, formate, hydrogen cardons and alcohols. In an aqueous solution, this process requires electrons and protons.
