The direct conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) using green hydrogen is a sustainable approach to jet fuel production. However, achieving a high level of performance remains a formidable challenge due to the inertness of CO2 and its low activity for subsequent C¨CC bond formation. In this study, we prepared a Na-modified CoFe alloy catalyst using layered double-hydroxide precursors that directly transforms CO2 to a jet fuel composed of C8¨CC16 jet-fuel-range hydrocarbons with very high selectivity. At a temperature of 240¡ãC and pressure of 3 MPa, the catalyst achieves an unprecedentedly high C8¨CC16 selectivity of 63.5% with 10.2% CO2 conversion and a low combined selectivity of less than 22% toward undesired CO and CH4.
