Prélèvement de monoxyde de carbone à l'aide d'une seringue à gaz
Extraction of carbon monoxide (CO) using a gas syringe. It is then detected and quantified in a gas chromatography device. This carbon monoxide comes from the conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) effected by an iron-based molecular catalyst and electrons supplied by a carbon electrode. This catalyst enables CO2 reduction that is considerably faster and more stable over time than the usual catalysts. The goal is to develop a process to exploit the carbon dioxide, one of the principal greenhouse gases.
