Global environmental problems induced by the rapid consummation of fossil fuels have become more and more serious. In this context, the reduction and conversion of carbon dioxide (CO$_2$) has been intensively studied because CO$_2$ is a greenhouse gas which is responsible for the global warming. This review focuses on the low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy investigations of single CO$_2$ molecules on surfaces. We divide the supported substrates into the following categories: metal surfaces, metal oxide surfaces, and surfaces decorated by metal-organic frameworks. The single molecule study of CO$_2$ molecules helps to understand the microscopic mechanism of reduction and conversion of CO$_2$ molecules.
Keywords:Carbon Dioxide, Low-Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, Surface Science.
