Successful NordCO2 Course

Tthe NordCO2 consortium organized a great course on ‘Mechanisms for CO2 activation’ at UiT (September 12-14).
22 students from UiB, UiO, UU, UiT, AU and KTH joined, with lecturers coming from all the Nordic Countries (Denmark, Iceland, Sween, Finland and Norway).

Impressions from the course:

Protonolysis of hemiaminals is a key step in the amine catalyzed reduction of CO2 to methanol. A team led by Ainara Nova have gathered new insights to the mechanism of this step. Read more about the research HERE.

One of the largest problems with reducing CO2 to other small molecules is that you often get mixtures of different molecules, like methane, methanol, ethanol, ethene, et cetera. See how Prof. Skulason approches this problem HERE.
