Choosing the right partner: Synthesis of a rare metal complex of nitrous oxide opens new vistas for the degradation of a potent greenhouse gas

25-Feb-2021

Like its chemical relative carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) is an important greenhouse gas and the dominant ozone-depleting substance emitted in the 21st Century. Consequently, strategies for limiting its emissions and its catalytic decomposition with metals are being developed. A recent ...
