From Forgotten Formula to Climate Game Changer: A New Tool for … Scientists at Cornell University have re-purposed the 120-year-old Cottrell equation to understand the reactions carbon dioxide undergoes when subjected to electrochemistry, with the goal of converting the gas into useful products. The researchers believe that the classic equation can help electrochemists control the reactions to create desirable products like ethylene, ethane, or ethanol, effectively transforming an environmental issue into a renewable resource.
