A metal-organic conjugated micorporous polymer (CMP) containing a manganese carbonyl electrocatalyst for CO2 reduction has been synthesised and electrochemically characterised. Incorporation in a rigid framework changes the behavior of the catalyst, preventing reductive dimerization. These initial studies demonstrate the feasibility of CMP electrodes that can provide both high local CO2 concentrations and well defined electrocatalytic sites.
