How coordination of a CO2 molecule can assist in the release of HCOOH from the [P2Rh(HCOOH)] complex in the last step of the hydrogenation of CO2 catalyzed by rhodium complexes has been investigated by density functional methods. The effect of a supercritical CO2 solution has been included using the polarizable continuum method. It has been found that the presence of a CO2 molecule in the model of the active site favors the thermodynamics of the HCOOH dissociation from the [P2Rh(HCOOH)] species.
