Artist's rendering of a copper nanoparticle as it evolves during CO2 electrolysis: copper nanoparticles (left) combine into larger metallic copper "nanograins" (right) within seconds of the electrochemical reaction, reducing CO2 into new multicarbon products.

Exploring the mysteries of copper, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have discovered yet another use for this "new oil" of the clean energy future – converting carbon dioxide and water into fuels and chemicals. But to witness this discovery, the scientists had to design an entirely new nanoimaging technology.

The idea of water-powered engines has been waiting for its mo...
