In this study, the catalytic activity and hydrocarbon selectivity in electrochemical carbon dioxide reduction on Copper(I) Oxide (Cu2O) and its hybrid structure with ZnO nanorods was investigated. C1, C2, and C3 species’ Faradaic efficiencies were detected and quantified by GC and NMR. Elemental composition and morphological characterization of the prepared catalysts were performed using FESEM, and EDS. Preparation conditions of the electrocatalysts significantly affect catalyst properties and activity and hydrocarbon yields from CO2 reduction.
