Reaction & Synthesis
Novel approach uses a photochemical process to make the gas reactive
Researchers have shown that nano-scale membranes made from metal organic frameworks can yield orders-of-magnitude improvement over existing techniques.
Bio-engineered approach could underpin commercial production of plastics and drugs.
During electrolysis, water initially splits into oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen then reacts with either carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide to produce methane, releasing heat.
