Abstract

This short review summarizes examples of many homogeneous non-noble catalysts for CO2-to-CO reduction and compares their feasible mechanisms. The focus is to show that elucidating the electronic structure of the catalytic system likely provides better understanding of the reaction mechanism and product selectivity.
