...H group). The by-product of the reaction is carbon monoxide
(CO), which can be used directly for chemical syntheses. From a purely formal point of view, this reaction cleaves the CO2 into an oxygen diradical and CO. However, like photosynthesis, the reaction seems to occur by way of carbamates: In the firs...
