Title (EN) METHOD AND CELL FOR CONVERSION OF DINITROGEN INTO AMMONIA
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET CELLULE DE CONVERSION DE DIAZOTE EN AMMONIAC
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a method and an electrochemical cell comprising a cathodic working electrode comprising a nanostructured catalyst, a counter electrode and an electrolyte for the reduction of dinitrogen to ammonia. The invention includes introducing dinitrogen and a source of hydrogen to the electrolyte, wherein the dinitrogen is reduced to ammonia at the cathodic working electrode. The electrolyte comprises one or more liquid salts formed from the combination of a specified set of cations and a specified set of anions.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et une cellule électrochimique comprenant une électrode de travail cathodique comprenant un catalyseur nanostructuré, une contre-électrode et un électrolyte pour la réduction de diazote en ammoniac. L’invention comprend l’introduction de diazote et d’une source d’hydrogène dans l’électrolyte, le diazote étant réduit en ammoniac au niveau de l’électrode de travail cathodique. L’électrolyte comprend un ou plusieurs sels liquides formés de la combinaison d’un ensemble spécifié de cations et d’un ensemble spécifié d’anions.
