AbstractThe electrochemical reduction of CO2 holds great promise for lowering the concentration of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere. However, several challenges have hindered the commercialization of this technology, including energy efficiency, the solubility of CO2 in the aqueous phase, and electrode stability. In this Minireview, we highlight and summarize the main advantages and limitations that metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) may offer in this field of research, either when used directly as electrocatalysts or when used as catalyst precursors.
