Part of the SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science book series (BRIEFSMOLECULAR)


The photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide is a process that has received significant attention in the literature of the second half of the twentieth century. This chapter shows how chemical conditions and the environment can envisage various aspects of this process and explains what consequences these findings may have on the origin of methane on terrestrial planets, which is shown on the case of Mars.
