Abstract

Over 30megatons of formaldehyde are required per year and industrially produced through three high-temperature gas-phase processes: i)natural gas reforming to syngas, ii)methanol synthesis, and iii)partial oxidation to formaldehyde with limited selectivity. In vast contrast to these energy-intensive oxidative and dehydrogenative methods, a reductive top-down methodology using CO2 and CO as carbon source would be desirable and is not very well present in the literature for more than 100years. The key to success is the reaction performance in liquid solution in water or methanol at low temperature.
