- We hereby report on a pioneering and inspiring solid oxide cell which, assisted by natural gas, utilizes a bifunctional electrolysis cell configuration to effectively consume CO₂ to produce CO at the cathode side and simultaneously synthesize highly valuable syngas (mixture of CO and H₂) at the anode side via a one-step green process.
