Bismuth coated graphite felt modified by silver particles for selective electroreduction of CO2 into formate in a flow cell

Abstract : A 3D porous Ag-Bi electrode was developed to achieve the highly selective reduction of CO2 into formate. Ag particles were deposited on Bi coated graphite felt by galvanic displacement reaction. The selectivity of the reduction was enhanced with the Ag-Bi electrode compared with Bi coated graphite felt. The bimetallic catalytic system converted CO2 into formate with a high selectivity of 88% at -1.6 VSCE. The highly porous structure and large surface area of the electrode facilitated the mass transport, leading to a high surface current density of 76 mA cm−2 and a production rate of 8.1 ± 0.4 mmol cm−3 h−1 (62 ± 3 mg cm−2 h−1). These results are very promising in the context of the electrochemical conversion of CO2.
