 As the situation of energy crisis and environmental pollution become more and more serious, the electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) has attracted lots of attention because of its multiple meanings such as environment, resources and economic benefits. In this paper, the state of the art electrochemical reduction of CO2 in aqueous solution is reviewed, and the latest research progress in Cu-based catalysts with different structures and morphologies is summarized. In the end, the application prospects, opportunities and challenges of Cu-based materials are briefly presented to provide an outlook for future research directions.

Key words: carbon dioxide, electrocatalysis, reduction, electrode materials, copper-based catalyst
