Title Activation of Carbon Dioxide over Zinc Oxide by Localised Electrons
Contributors
Abstract The unique mechanism of activation of carbon dioxide over zinc oxide is unravelled using advanced quantum mechanical methods. The key process is the CO2 chemisorption catalysed by a highly localized electron carrier trapped at a vacant oxygen interstitial surface site. At the top of the reaction barrier CO2 pulls the electron from the vacancy and thus becomes active.
