Abstract

The global warming is triggered by an increase in greenhouse gases that mostly contain CO2. It is a great concern to the whole world to reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere. To reduce CO2 at low over potential and high kinetics, here we synthesize the bimetallic of Cu and Zn. The synthesis method is carried out by solvothermal method with variations in temperature and concentration of precursors. The synthesis results are then characterized using SEM, XRD, and XRF. The relationship between solvothermal temperature and ZnO particle size is directly proportional. In addition, the greater the concentration of cu precursors used, the easier cu particles are formed. At a solvothermal temperature of 150°C, there is only one sample of Cu3Zn1 (75% Cu precursor and 25% Zn precursor) that can produce Cu particles.
