After studying displacement at school, I wondered if it is possible to reduce the toxic gas of carbon monoxide to less harmful and more useful substances, like so:
Carbon monoxide + metal -> Carbon + metal oxide
Where the metal is of course more reactive than carbon, higher in the reactivity series, and so would displace it.
Is this chemically possible, or does it require too much energy? Forgive me if I appear foolish, but I just wonder if it could actually happen.
After researching extensively online, the main things which come up in searches are reduction of carbon dioxide, rather than carbon monoxide.
