Nanophase Zn ferrites prepared by hydrothermal methods show very high efficiency for CO2 greenhouse gas decomposition to carbon and oxygen with little or no CO as a byproduct; nanophase ferrites are highly efficient for CO2 decomposition because this is a surface reaction and their surface to volume ratio is very high.
