From both the economic and the ecological standpoint, making the process of CO2 reduction more efficient would be of paramount importance. Use of catalysts is a highly attractive strategy to make the process easier. In this study, the adsorption and initial activation of CO2 on four-atom metal clusters supported on a defective graphene sheet have been investigated using a computational approach. Results of different binding configurations of CO2 and the difference among these metal clusters will be discussed.
