Methanol from CO(2) : For the hydrogenation of carbon dioxide a marked increase in the methanol selectivity was observed when the reaction was catalyzed by Cu/rod-shaped ZnO/CdSe with heterojunction structure. Diffusion reflectance, photoluminescence, and ESR spectroscopies clearly indicated an increase in the electron density because of the incorporation of CdSe in the core-shell morphology of Cu/rod-shaped ZnO.
