Abstract: Green hydrogen and its energy-efficient conversion into base chemicals and synthetic fuels on a global industrial scale is regarded as a building block of sustainable energy systems. Sustainably produced hydrogen-based chemical energy carriers are critical for long-term storage solutions, crucial as enablers for the transformation of the mobility sector, and a core component of the defossilization of industrial processes, especially in energy-intensive industries. However, such a hydrogen economy can only be achieved with innovation leaps in synthesis chemistry for the required conversion processes.
