The conversion of carbon dioxide into value-added chemicals is of growing importance for academic and industrial scientists. Regarding scale, the reduction of carbon dioxide to methanol is the most important reaction, not only for chemical products but also as a potential energy vector. Herein, we describe recent developments in carbon dioxide reduction to methanol focusing on the use of organometallic catalysts.
