UTA proves organic polymers can harvest sunlight to split CO2 into alcohol fuels

(University of Texas at Arlington) Chemists at the University of Texas at Arlington have been the first to demonstrate that an organic semiconductor polymer called polyaniline is a promising photocathode material for the conversion of carbon dioxide into alcohol fuels without the need for a co-catalyst.
