Abstract

Sequestration, activation, and catalytic transformations of carbon dioxide (CO2) have attracted much attention in last years, because of its increasing concentration in the atmosphere. The understanding of all these processes is essential for the development and improvement of new catalysts, materials and procedures associated with CO2 fixation. The current study intends to clarify, at the molecular level, aspects of the chemistry involved in the CO2 activation catalyzed by N-Heterocyclic carbene (NHCs) systems, organics and organometallics. Calculations using density functionals and wavefunction-based calculations will be combined with tools of analysis and interpretation of chemical bonds in order to provide a detailed study of the chemical and physical properties that drive the interaction of CO2 with the NHCs compounds.
