Precious metals have been attracting significant interest as active catalysts for sustainable fuel production and environmental remediation. This chapter is divided into two parts encompassing the use of precious metals, mainly Pt, Pd and Rh in the utilisation of CO2 for fuels production and for sustainable H2 production. For CO2 utilisation, we focus on CO2 hydrogenation using heterogeneous catalysts, photocatalytic CO2 reduction and electrochemical reduction of CO2. The influence of metal oxide support, alkaline promoter and bimetallic catalysts is discussed in detail. Basic principles and application of precious metal catalysts for electrochemical energy application (fuel cells, FCs) are discussed briefly. Read More:
