Carbon dioxide is the main component of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and its man-made imbalance in the ecosphere is often viewed as one of the possible causes of global climate change. One way to reduce CO2 imbalance is to use it as a «building block» for the synthesis of various inorganic and organic compounds. The present work experimentally fixes the fact of the formation of C-C bond in the process of conversion of carbon dioxide in ftrifluoroacetic acid (TFA), which leads to the appearance of a product with high molecular weight. This fact has never been described in literature before. It is shown that the activation of CO2 is associated with the molecular oxygen dissolved in TFA.
