Abstract

Recent significant progress in the homogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of CO2 to formate (the conjugate base of formic acid) and dehydrogenation of formic acid in various solvents including water is summarized. While formic acid is not the perfect H2 storage solution, many researchers consider it better than other methods at this time because the interconversion of CO2 and formic acid can take place cleanly to form H2 without detectable CO under mild conditions. In this chapter, we explain how inspirations from biological systems guide us to design homogeneous transition-metal catalysts for carrying out the interconversion of CO2 and formate under ambient conditions in environmentally benign and economically desirable water solvent.
