Abstract : Small molecules based on carbon and nitrogen oxides, such as CO$_2$, CO and N$_2$O, are problematic toxic and/or greenhouse effects. Although they exhibit a low reactivity, they also represent attractive sources of nitrogen and carbon and represent interesting model substrates to better understand the intrinsic reactivity of CO and NO bonds. Our recent work on small molecules has led us to develop efficient catalytic reactions aiming at the reduction and functionalization of carbon and nitrogen oxides. While catalysts based on transition metal complexes define the state-of-the-art in the conversion of CO$_2$, N$_2$O and CO, we have shown that catalysts based on main group elements can convert these stable gases, under ambient conditions.
