An investigation of possible methods of dissociation of respiratory carbon dioxide to provide for recovery of oxygen indicates the most feasible methods to be a catalytic decomposition by chemisorption on reduced metals and photolysis of carbon dioxide by ultraviolet light. Reduction of carbon dioxide by iron, nickel, and cobalt gives 0 to 25 volumes per cent carbon monoxide at temperatures from 300 to 800° C.
