Chemical fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is an inexpensive and renewable carbon source, is becoming more and more important. The development of both new reactions and new catalysts is needed to overcome the kinetic and thermodynamic stability of CO2. Organic and metal catalysts with unique and excellent activity and selectivity have been developed for various chemical conversions of CO2. In this perspective, we provide an overview of the recent progress in this field, classifying it into several categories, where each research is concisely summarized one by one using a single reaction scheme, a representative catalyst structure, and/or a catalytic cycle.
