Water oxidation catalysed by a mononuclear CoII polypyridine complex; possible reaction intermediates and the role of the chloride ligand
2015 (English)In: Chemical Communications, ISSN 1359-7345, E-ISSN 1364-548X, Vol. 51, no 66, 13074-13077 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A mononuclear cobalt(II) complex as a homogeneous molecular catalyst for photochemically, electrochemically and chemically induced oxygen evolution reactions is presented. Experimental evidence points towards the presence of a chloride ligand at the cobalt centre throughout the catalytic cycle, and the temporary detachment of a pyridine ligand to open a coordination site for substrate binding.
