Carbon dioxide is the mainly responsible of global warming. The indirect conversion of CO2 is energetically less effectives than the photocatalytic reduction of CO2 into hydrocarbon. The present work aims to shed light on the behaviour of several Cu-TiO2 photocatalysts for the direct conversion of CO2 into methanol.
