Scholarcy highlights

  • Capture the energy: CO2 was captured in molten LiCl–Li2CO3 salt and subsequently converted into amorphous carbon on the cathode and oxygen gas on the inert anode
  • CO2 could be effectively absorbed in such chloride melts with a low content of oxygen ion dissolved
  • The produced carbon displayed good performance as a negative electrode material for Li-ion batteries, suggesting that the process is an environmentally friendly way to convert CO2 into energy-storage materials
