    • Abstract


      Apart from the industrial production of carbon dioxide (CO$_2$), large amounts of CO$_2$ emissions are associated with increased fossil fuel consumption. Photoreduction of CO$_2$ into hydrocarbon fuels such as methane and methanol is apromising method to convert CO$_2$ as fuel feedstock using the advantage of solar energy. There are several methods and nanomaterials used for the photoreduction of CO$_2$. Efficient nanostructured catalysts are used for CO$_2$ photoreduction.This review discusses the CO$_2$ photoreduction possible strategies to enhance photoreduction efficiency and the photocatalytic systems (homogenous and heterogeneous catalysts) for CO$_2$ reduction.
