Abstract: Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas that is isoelectronic to CO2. Few transition metal electrocatalysts for N2O reduction have been described. In this defense, I will present my work to develop a nitrous oxide reduction electrocatalyst from a platinum CO2 reduction. Catalytic reduction of N2O was confirmed through electrolysis. Key intermediates and the rate-determining step were identified.
