Today’s growing demand for energy, materials and chemicals has prompted renewed interest in CO2 chemistry. One of the most abundant renewable resources of carbon is carbon dioxide. Due to the abundant availability of pure CO2 gas streams, it is only logical to promote a more widespread use of carbon dioxide as chemical feedstock. Notably, the use of CO2 for manufacturing materials and chemicals is still in its infancy. This Thematic Series presents intriguing approaches regarding different methodologies to activate carbon dioxide. Altogether, the articles present a remarkable overview of opportunities in the field of CO2 chemistry from many of its top practitioners. Exploiting carbon dioxide to create economic value will be the driving force for the more widespread use of this fascinating molecule.
