Catalytic conversion of CO2 into valuable chemicals not only mitigates the negative effects of CO2 emissions, but also offers an effective way to complete the carbon cycle and build a sustainable carbon-neutral fuel/chemical production strategy. The activation and selective conversion of CO2 on metal/oxide catalysts is a difficult task due to the stability and non-polar character of this molecule. In recent years, in situ or operando studies with different characterization techniques have provided valuable insights into fundamental aspects associated with the effective binding of CO2 and the transformation of its C–O bonds.
