As we all know that global warming is directly affecting the ecosystem and human kind in the 21st century, solutions are continuously coming into mind to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases. Of a particular interest is carbon dioxide (CO2) due to its increasing levels in the atmosphere and contribution to global warming. The identification and characterization of a relatively cheaper and simple electro catalyst for CO2 reduction was achieved with a certain degree of success, with the optimization and development in such a way that not only the electro catalytic species, but also the entire electrochemical system was systematically investigated, in order to determine the roles played by the various components. Electrochemical carbon dioxide reduction reaction is a process in which we can store energy from intermittent electricity sources and for the synthesis of carbon-based compounds that are currently derived from fossil fuels which are decreasing day by day. In this regards we have designed and successfully synthesized a series of pyridine based ligand moiety and also fully characterized by different spectroscopic techniques such as 1HNMR, 13CNMR, DEPT, FTIR, Mass etc. which will be tested for catalytic CO2 reduction. Efforts to grow suitable single crystal for our targeted ligands has also been done.
