In recent years, tremendous attention has been focussed on electrochemical conversion of CO2 to fuels, which utilizes electricity produced from renewable energy resources (such as wind, solar, and hydro) to transform the greenhouse gas CO2 into value-added substances. Hybrid 2D (two-dimensional) based materials are highly desirable for the electro reduction of CO2 because of its large active surface area, unique properties like excellent electronic conductivity and high stability, which are advantageous for the increased interfacial charge and mass transfer for efficient and long-term CO2 electrocatalysis. Therefore, this chapter mainly focusses on recent CO2 electroreduction of 2D hybrid nanostructured electrocatalysts development. Advances in the improvement of reaction activity, primary product selectivity and catalytic stability on 2D hybrid materials are highlighted and discussed as insights towards efficient and selective CO2 electroreduction to valuable products.
