The chemistry of CO2 activation and fixation

Our objective is to describe the essential molecular factors, at the most fundamental level, that govern how CO2 forms covalent bonds to hydrogen and carbon, mediated by electrons and catalysed by specific metals. This knowledge is of high relevance to large-scale processes in which carbon dioxide may be converted to commodity chemicals and polymers, and to biological CO2 fixation.
