Research on CO2 capture and utilization to produce chemicals and fuels has received a significant amount of attention in recent years, primarily because of the growing recognition in the scientific community that progress in this field offers opportunities for solving the problems of both fossil fuel depletion and global warming. The goal of this chapter is to display the broad array of recent developments in this area of research, including the current technology and promising methods for CO2 capture, the thermodynamics/kinetics of CO2 binding and structures of metal CO2 complexes, conversion of CO2 to industrially useful chemicals, hydrogenation of CO2 to produce fuels, and the electrochemical and photochemical reduction of CO2.
