Cost-effective capturing methods for carbon dioxide at ambient conditions might be a key for a sustainable carbon economy. As electrochemically activated nucleophiles for CO2 binding are emerging the scientific community, selected organic pigments already in use for organic electronics are investigated. This work focusses on pigment groups which contain at least one carbonyl moiety. The first screening of the materials is done electrochemically with cyclic voltammetry (CV) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In-depth studies on the pigment of choice are done with UV-Vis and IR spectroelectrochemistry and proof for reversible electrochemical capture and release of carbon dioxide with IR. Going one step further towards CO2 reduction, the catalytic behaviour of pigment in junction with catalytically active metals like gold, platinum, nickel, tin and copper is investigated.
