Abstract [en]

Two molecular assemblies with one Ru(II)-polypyridine photosensitizer covalently linked to one Ru(II)(bda)L2 catalyst (1) (bda = 2,2'-bipyridine-6,6'-dicarboxylate) and two photosensitizers covalently linked to one catalyst (2) have been prepared using a simple C-C bond as the linkage. In the presence of sodium persulfate as a sacrificial electron acceptor, both of them show high activity for catalytic water oxidation driven by visible light, with a turnover number up to 200 for 2. The linked photocatalysts show a lower initial yield for light driven oxygen evolution but a much better photostability compared to the three component system with separate sensitizer, catalyst and acceptor, leading to a much greater turnover number. Photocatalytic experiments and time-resolved spectroscopy were carried out to probe the mechanism of this catalysis. The linked catalyst in its Ru(II) state rapidly quenches the sensitizer, predominantly by energy transfer. However, a higher stability under photocatalytic condition is shown for the linked sensitizer compared to the three component system, which is attributed to kinetic stabilization by rapid photosensitizer regeneration. Strategies for employment of the sensitizer-catalyst molecules in more efficient photocatalytic systems are discussed.

Abstract [en]

Catalysis is an important part of chemistry. This is also reflected in the chemical industry where 85-90 % of all products are made catalytically. Also nature employs catalysts, i.e. enzymes, for its reactions.

To improve on the already existing catalysts one can learn a lot from nature which often uses earth-abundant elements in the enzymes which have also been optimized and finely tuned for billions of years. To gain a deeper understanding of both enzymatic and artificial catalysis one needs to investigate the mechanism of the catalytic process. But for very efficient catalysts with turnover frequencies of several thousand per second this is not easy, since an investigation of the mechanism involves resolving intermediates in the catalytic cycle. The intermediates in these instances are short-lived corresponding to their turnover frequencies. A maximum turnover frequency of 1,000 s-1 e.g. means that each catalyst goes through the whole catalytic cycle in 1 ms. Therefore time-resolved techniques are necessary that have a faster detection speed than the turnover frequency of the catalyst.

Flash photolysis is a spectroscopic technique with an instrument response function down to 10 ns.  Coupling this technique with mid-infrared probing yields an excellent detection system for probing different redox and protonation states of carbonyl metal complexes. Since many catalysts as well as natural enzymes involved in water splitting are metal carbonyl complexes this is an ideal technique to monitor the intermediates of these catalysts.

Chapter 3 covers the investigation of [FeFe] hydrogenases, enzymes that catalyze the reduction of protons to hydrogen in nature. Chapter 4 investigates the intermediates of biomimetic complexes, resembling the active site of natural [FeFe] hydrogenases. Chapter 5 covers the insights gained from investigating other catalysts which are also involved in water splitting and artificial photosynthesis.
