# s-chem: fuel from air

<< A highly efficient homogeneous catalyst system for the production of CH3OH from CO2 using pentaethylenehexamine and Ru-Macho-BH (1) at 125–165 °C in an ethereal solvent has been developed (initial turnover frequency = 70 h–1 at 145 °C) >>

<< Various sources of CO2 can be used for this reaction including air, despite its low CO2 concentration (400 ppm) >>
