    Formation of stoichiometrically O-18-labelled oxygen from the oxidation of O-18-enriched water mediated by a dinuclear manganese complex: a mass spectrometry and EPR study2008Inngår i: Energy & Environmental Science, ISSN 1754-5692, E-ISSN 1754-5706, Vol. 1, nr 6, s. 668-676Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Oxygen formation was detected for the oxidations of various multinuclear manganese complexes by oxone (HSO5-) in aqueous solution. To determine to what extent water was the source of the evolved O-2, (H2O)-O-18 isotope-labelling experiments coupled with membrane inlet mass spectrometry (MIMS) were carried out. We discovered that during the reaction of oxone with [Mn-2(OAc)(2)(bpmp)](+) (1), stoichiometrically labelled oxygen (O-18(2)) was formed. This is the first example of a homogeneous reaction mediated by a synthetic manganese complex where the addition of a strong chemical oxidant yields O-18(2) with labelling percentages matching the theoretically expected values for the case of both O-atoms originating from water. Experiments using lead acetate as an alternative oxidant supported this finding. A detailed investigation of the reaction by EPR spectroscopy, MIMS and Clark-type oxygen detection enabled us to propose potential reaction pathways.

    Synthesis and properties of a heterobimetallic iron-manganese complex and its comparison with homobimetallic analogues2019Inngår i: Inorganica Chimica Acta, ISSN 0020-1693, E-ISSN 1873-3255, Vol. 490, s. 254-260Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Heterobimetallic cofactors containing one manganese and one iron ion have recently been found within the di-metal carboxylate protein family. Herein we report the synthesis and characterization of three binuclear metal complexes with Fe-Fe, Mn-Mn, and Fe-Mn metal composition. All three complexes use the same ligand framework, the BPMP ligand (HBPMP=2,6-bis[(bis (-2-pyridylmethyl)amine) methyl]-4-methylphenol)) with two additional acetate ligands bridging the two metals. In terms of stability towards metal exchange, the Fe-Mn is more stable than the Mn-Mn complex but less stable than the Fe-Fe complex. Cyclic voltammetry shows that the Fe-Mn complex behaves markedly different than the homobimetallic complexes. The Fe-Mn complex also shows higher reactivity with O-2 than both the Fe-Fe and the Mn-Mn counterparts.

    FTIR Study of Manganese Dimers with Carboxylate Donors As Model Complexes for the Water Oxidation Complex in Photosystem II2012Inngår i: Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 0020-1669, E-ISSN 1520-510X, Vol. 51, nr 4, s. 2332-2337Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The carboxylate stretching frequencies of two high-valent, di-mu-oxido bridged, manganese dimers has been studied with IR spectroscopy in three different oxidation states. Both complexes contain one monodentate carboxylate donor to each Mn ion, in one complex, the carboxylate is coordinated perpendicular to the Mn-(mu-O)(2)-Mn plane, and in the other complex, the carboxylate is coordinated in the Mn-(mu-O)(2)-Mn plane. For both complexes, the difference between the asymmetric and the symmetric carboxylate stretching frequen-cies decrease for both the Mn-2(IV,IV) to Mn-2(III,IV) transition and the Mn-2(III,IV) to Mn-2(III,III) transition, with only minor differences observed between the two arrangements of the carboxylate ligand versus the Mn-(mu-O)(2)-Mn plane. The IR spectra also show that both carboxylate ligands are affected for each one electron reduction, i.e., the stretching frequency of the carboxylate coordinated to the Mn ion that is not reduced also shifts. These results are discussed in relation to FTIR studies of changes in carboxylate stretching frequencies in a one electron oxidation step of the water oxidation complex in Photosystem II.

    Synthesis and characterisation of low valent Mn-complexes as models for Mn-catalases2010Inngår i: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, Vol. 39, nr 45, s. 11035-11044Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work we report the synthesis of two novel manganese complexes, [L1(3)Mn(6)(II)](ClO4)(6) (1 center dot(ClO4)(6)) and [L2Mn(2)(II)(mu-OAc)(mu-Cl)](ClO4)(2) (2 center dot(ClO4)(2)), where L1(2-) is the 2,2'-(1,3-phenylenebis(methylene))bis-((2-(bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)amino)ethyl)azanediyl)diacetic acid anion and L2 is N1,N1'-(1,3-phenylenebis(methylene))bis(N2,N2'-bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)ethane-1,2-diamine). The ligands Na(2)L1 and L2 are built on the same backbone, L2 only contains nitrogen donors, while two carboxylate arms have been introduced in Na(2)L1. The two complexes have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, magnetic susceptibility, EPR spectroscopy, and electrochemistry. X-Ray crystallography revealed that 1 is a manganese(II) hexamer and 2 is a manganese(II) dimer featuring an unprecedented mono-mu-acetato, mono-mu-chlorido bridging motif. The ability of the complexes to catalyse H2O2 disproportionation, thereby acting as models for manganese catalases, has been investigated and compared to the activity of two other related manganese complexes. The introduction of carboxylate donors in the ligands, leading to increased denticity, resulted in a drop in H2O2 disproportionation activity.

    Mechanistic Studies on the Water-Oxidizing Reaction of Homogeneous Manganese-Based Catalysts: Isolation and Characterization of a Suggested Catalytic Intermediate2011Inngår i: Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 0020-1669, E-ISSN 1520-510X, Vol. 50, nr 8, s. 3425-3430Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The synthesis, isolation, and characterization of two high-valent manganese dimers with isomeric ligands are reported. The complexes are synthesized and crystallized from solutions of low-valent precursors exposed to tert-butyl hydroperoxide. The crystal structures display centrosymmetric complexesconsisting of Mn2 IV,IV(μ-O)2 cores, with one ligand coordinating to each manganese. The ligands coordinate with the diaminoethane backbone, the carboxylate, and one of the two pyridines, while the second pyridine is noncoordinating. The activity of these complexes, under water oxidation conditions, is discussed in light of a proposed mechanism for water oxidation, in which this type of complexes have been suggested as a key intermediate.

    Quantitative determination of the Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) cation in photochemical reactions by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry2014Inngår i: Analytical Methods, ISSN 1759-9660, E-ISSN 1759-9679, Vol. 6, nr 21, s. 8513-8518Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The coordination compound of Ru(II) with three 2,2'-bipyridine ligands possesses a potent photosensitization capacity for electron- and energy-transfer processes. In combination with salts of peroxydisulfate acid as sacrificial electron acceptors, Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) is widely used for photocatalytic oxidative transformations in organic synthesis and water splitting. The drawback of this system is that bipyridine degrades under the resulting strongly oxidative conditions, the concentration of Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) diminishes, and the photocatalytic reaction eventually stops. A commonly employed assay for the determination of Ru(bpy)(3)(2+), UV-Vis spectroscopy, has low selectivity and does not distinguish between the intact complex and its decayed forms. Here, we report a matrix assisted laser desorption/ionisation mass spectrometric method for the quantitative analysis of Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) in photochemical reaction mixtures. The developed method was successfully used for the determination of intact Ru(bpy)(3)(2+) during the course of the water photooxidation reaction. The significant difference between the results of MALDI MS and UV-Vis analyses was observed.

    A new tri-nuclear Cu-carbonate cluster utilizing CO2 as a C1-building block - reactive intermediates, a probable mechanism, and EPR and magnetic studies2019Inngår i: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, Vol. 48, nr 11, s. 3576-3582Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This work demonstrates that simple copper-bipyridine compounds and atmospheric CO2 react to produce useful/complex materials under appropriate conditions. Starting from a distorted square planar copper(II) complex, [((tbu)bpy)CuCl2]((tbu)bpy = 4-tert-butyl-2-(4-tert-butylpyridin-2-yl)pyridine), an air-sensitive, copper(I) complex,[((tbu)bpy)(2)Cu-I][BF4], which exhibits a distorted tetrahedral geometry, was synthesized and characterized. Reactions of [((tbu)bpy)(2)Cu-I][BF4] with CO2 inside a sealed tube and with air were carried out over a week and three weeks, respectively. A new tricopper(II)-carbonato cluster, [{((tbu)bpy)(2)Cu}(3)(mu-CO3)][PF6](4), was isolated with three distorted octahedral copper(II) centres bound by a carbonate-bridge formed from atmospheric CO2. NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopic analyses coupled with previous reports point to a multi-step process in the formation of a trinuclear Cu-II-carbonato cluster that includes the probable involvement of mu-hydroxo-bridged dicopper(II) type intermediates.

    Iron Pentapyridyl Complexes as Molecular WaterOxidation Catalysts: Strong Influence of a Chloride Ligandand pH in Altering the Mechanism2016Inngår i: ChemSusChem, ISSN 1864-5631, E-ISSN 1864-564X, Vol. 9, nr 10, s. 1178-1186Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of molecular water oxidation catalysts basedon earth-abundant, non-noble metals is essential for artificial photosynthesis research. Iron, which is the most abundant transition metal in the earth's crust, is a prospective candidate for this purpose. Herein, we report two iron complexes based on the polypyridyl ligand Py5OH (Py5OH=pyridine-2,6-diylbis[di(pyridin-2-yl)methanol]) that can catalyse water oxidation to produce O2 in RuIII-induced (at pH 8, highest turnover number (TON)=26.5; turnover frequency (TOF)=2.2 s-1), CeIV-induced(at pH 1.5 highest TON=16; TOF=0.75 s-1) and photo-induced(at pH 8, highest TON=43.5; TOF=0.6 s-1) reactions. A chloride ligand in one of the iron complexes is shown to affect the activity strongly, improve stability and, thereby, the performance at pH 8 but it inhibits oxygen evolution at pH 1.5. The observations are consistent with a change in mechanism for catalytic water oxidation with the Fe(Py5OH) complexes between acidic (CeIV) and near-neutral pH (RuIII).

    Water oxidation catalysed by a mononuclear CoII polypyridine complex; possible reaction intermediates and the role of the chloride ligand2015Inngår i: Chemical Communications, ISSN 1359-7345, E-ISSN 1364-548X, Vol. 51, nr 66, s. 13074-13077Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    Structural features of molecular electrocatalysts in multi-electron redox processes for renewable energy: recent advances2019Inngår i: SUSTAINABLE ENERGY & FUELS, ISSN 2398-4902, Vol. 3, nr 9, s. 2159-2175Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding the structural features of molecular electrocatalysts for carbon dioxide reduction and water oxidation is essential for manufacturing next generation catalysts for renewable energy. We will discuss the crucial structural motifs of those catalysts that have shown novel characteristics in recent years in terms of electrocatalytic efficacy (high TON, TOF and low overpotential), product selectivity and mechanisms. Both inorganic and organic homogeneous catalysts are scrutinized in this review. We will also highlight electrocatalysts with dual activity (i.e. they are able to catalyze both water oxidation and CO2 reduction) as an interesting prospect from the point of view of a single catalyst electrolyzer: a possible design for future easy-to-manufacture effective electrolyzers. This discussion will enrich the overall knowledge on the electrocatalyst design, an important step towards the development of efficient catalysts with cutting edge designs for a renewable energy future and practical applications.

    First turnover analysis of water-oxidation catalyzed by Co-oxide nanoparticles2015Inngår i: Energy & Environmental Science, ISSN 1754-5692, E-ISSN 1754-5706, Vol. 8, nr 8, s. 2492-2503Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Co-oxides are promising water oxidation catalysts for artificial photosynthesis devices. Presently, several different proposals exist for how they catalyze O2 formation from water. Knowledge about this process at molecular detail will be required for their further improvement. Here we present time-resolved 18O-labelling isotope-ratio membrane-inlet mass spectrometry (MIMS) experiments to study the mechanism of water oxidation in Co/methylenediphosphonate (Co/M2P) oxide nanoparticles using [Ru(bpy)3]3+ (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine) as chemical oxidant. We show that 16O–Co/M2P-oxide nanoparticles produce 16O2 during their first turnover after simultaneous addition of H218O and [Ru(bpy)3]3+, while sequential addition with a delay of 3 s yields oxygen reflecting bulk water 18O-enrichment. This result is interpreted to show that the O–O bond formation in Co/M2P-oxide nanoparticles occurs via intramolecular oxygen coupling between two terminal Co–OHn ligands that are readily exchangeable with bulk water in the resting state of the catalyst. Importantly, our data allow the determination of the number of catalytic sites within this amorphous nanoparticular material, to calculate the TOF per catalytic site and to derive the number of holes needed for the production of the first O2 molecule per catalytic site. We propose that the mechanism of O–O bond formation during bulk catalysis in amorphous Co-oxides may differ from that taking place at the surface of crystalline materials.

    Ligand modification to stabilize the cobalt complexes for water oxidation2017Inngår i: International journal of hydrogen energy, ISSN 0360-3199, E-ISSN 1879-3487, Vol. 42, nr 50, s. 29716-29724Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Ligand modifications with electron-withdrawing and electron-donating groups were applied to afford three novel mononuclear cobalt-based catalysts [Co(TPA-R)]2+ (TPA = tris(2-pyridylmethyl) amine; R = tri-α F, 1; R = tri-αOMe, 2; R = mono-αF, 3) for water oxidation. Characterization of the catalysts shows that steric and electronic factors play important roles in inhibiting spontaneous intermolecular dimerization of two cobalt centers, and influence the catalytic behavior. Complex 1 exhibits the best catalytic ability and stability, showing a good efficiency with TOF of 6.03 ± 0.02 mol (O2)/(mol (cat)*s) in photo-induced water oxidation experiments using Ru (bpy)3 2+ as photosensitizer and Na2S2O8 as electron acceptor. The bulky electron donating groups in 2 led to degradation of the complex and formation of CoOx particles acting as the real catalyst. Electron-withdrawing substituents on the TPA ligand can stabilize the catalyst under both electrochemical and photo-induced conditions, with the enhancement increasing with the number of the electron-withdrawing groups. © 2017 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC.

    Homogeneous Water Oxidation by Half-Sandwich Iridium(III) N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes with Pendant Hydroxy and Amino Groups2017Inngår i: ChemSusChem, ISSN 1864-5631, E-ISSN 1864-564X, Vol. 10, nr 22, s. 4616-4623Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Herein, we report three IrIIICp* complexes with hydroxy- or amino-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands that catalyze efficient water oxidation induced by addition of ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN). The pendant hydroxy or amino groups are very important for activity, and the complexes with heteroatom-functionalized NHC ligands show up to 15 times higher rates of oxygen evolution in CAN-induced water oxidation than a reference IrIIICp* complex without heteroatom functionalization. The formation of molecular high-valent Ir intermediates that are presumably involved in the rate-determining step for water oxidation is established by UV/Vis spectroscopy and ESI-MS under turnover conditions. The hydroxy groups on the NHC ligands, as well as chloride ligands on the iridium center are proposed to structurally stabilize the high-valent species, and thereby improve the catalytic activity. The IrIII complex with a hydroxy-functionalized NHC shows the highest catalytic activity with a TON of 2500 obtained in 3 h and with ~90 % yield relative to the amount of oxidant used.

    Functional characterization of monomeric photosystem II core preparations from Thermosynechococcus elongatus with or without the Psb27 protein2007Inngår i: Biochemistry, ISSN 0006-2960, E-ISSN 1520-4995, Vol. 46, nr 18, s. 5542-5551Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Two monomeric fractions of photosystem II (PS II) core pacticles from the thermophilic cyanobacterium Thermosynechococcus elongatus have been investigated using flash-induced variable fluorescence kinetics and EPR spectroscopy. One fraction was highly active in oxygen evolution and contained the extrinsic protein subunits PsbO, PsbU, and PsbV. The other monomeric fraction lacked oxygen evolving activity as well as the three extrinsic subunits, but the luminally located, extrinsic Psb27 lipoprotein was present. In the monomeric fraction with bound Psb27, flash-induced variable fluorescence showed an absence of oxidizable Mn on the donor side of PS II and impaired forward electron transfer from the primary quinone acceptor, QA. These results were confirmed with EPR spectroscopy by the absence of the \"split S1\" interaction signal from YZ.bul. and the CaMn4 cluster and by the absence of the S2-state multiline signal. A different protein compn. on the donor side of PS II monomers with Psb27 was also supported by the lack of an EPR signal from cytochrome c550 (in the PsbV subunit). In addn., we did not observe any oxidn. of cytochrome b559 at low temp. in this fraction. The presence of Psb27 and the absence of the CaMn4 cluster did not affect the protein matrix around YD or the acceptor side quinones as can be judged from the appearance of the corresponding EPR signals. The diminished electron transport capabilities on both the donor and the acceptor side of PS II when Psb27 is present give further indications that this PS II complex is involved in the earlier steps of the PS II repair cycle.

    Formation of persistent organic diradicals from N,N'-diphenyl-3,7- diazacyclooctanes2019Inngår i: Monatshefte fuer Chemie, ISSN 0026-9247, E-ISSN 1434-4475, Vol. 150, nr 1, s. 77-84Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    N,N'-Diphenyl-3,7-diazacyclooctane and structurally related N,N'-diphenylbispidine derivatives react with silver(I) ions in a high-yielding C–C coupling reaction to produce dication–diradical species, with the silver ions serving a double function both as template and as an oxidant. The resulting bis(benzidino)phane derivatives are persistent organic radicals, stable for several months in solution as well as in the solid state, at room temperature and above, as well as being exposed to the atmosphere. The molecular structure features a double-decker cyclophane motif, stabilized by intramolecular π-dimerization of two delocalized benzidinium radical segments. Intermolecular π-dimers are formed in the solid state.

    Mononuclear Iron Complexes with Tetraazadentate Ligands as Water Oxidation Catalysts2016Inngår i: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 1434-1948, E-ISSN 1099-1948, Vol. 20, s. 3262-3268Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Two iron(II) complexes with tetraazadentate ligands have been synthesised, characterised and evaluated as water oxidation catalysts. The two ligands, N,N′-diisopropyl-N,N′-bis(2-pyridylmethyl)-1,2-diaminoethane (1), and N-methyl-N-(2-pyridinylmethyl)-2,2′-bipyridine-6-methanamine (2), both give iron(II)complexes (1Fe and 2Fe, respectively) with an octahedral coordination geometry with two labile triflate ligands in a cis configuration in the crystal structures. When treated with cerium(IV) as a chemical oxidant in aqueous solution at room temperature the complexes form semi-stable FeIV(O) species that can be detected in the UV/Visible region. Both 1Fe and 2Fe can act as catalysts for water oxidation when treated with a large excess of oxidant, but 1Fe is a better catalyst than 2Fe. Possible geometrical factors behind this difference in reactivity are discussed and compared with literature data.

    Structural, magnetic, thermal and visible light-driven water oxidation studies of heterometallic Mn/V complexes2015Inngår i: Polyhedron, ISSN 0277-5387, E-ISSN 1873-3719, Vol. 88, s. 81-89Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper a novel synthetic route, being a paradigm of the "direct synthesis" approach, is proposed for the preparation of heterometallic Mn/V compounds by a one-pot reaction. Two synthesized complexes, (NH4)(2)[Mn-2(HGly)(H2O)(10)][V10O28]center dot(HGlY)center dot 2H(2)O (1) and (NR4)(2)[Mn(beta-HAIa)(H2O)(5)](2)[V10O28]center dot 2H(2)O (2) (HGly = glycine, beta-HAla = beta-alanine) have been fully characterized by elemental analysis, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, cyclic voltammetry, magnetic susceptibility, FTIR and EPR spectroscopy. Thermal degradation of these compounds lead to the formation of porous, solid mixed oxides V2O5/MnV2O6 in a ratio of 3:2, which were analyzed by X-ray phase analysis and scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (SEM/EDX). Additionally the ability of 1 and 2 to act as oxygen evolving water oxidation catalysts under visible light-driven conditions have been studied in a Clark type cell and by ex situ EPR spectroscopy.

    Homogeneous Cobalt/Vanadium Complexes as Precursors for Functionalized Mixed Oxides in Visible-Light-Driven Water Oxidation2016Inngår i: ChemSusChem, ISSN 1864-5631, E-ISSN 1864-564X, Vol. 9, nr 20, s. 2957-2966Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The heterometallic complexes (NH4)2[Co(H2O)6]2[V10O28]·4H2O (1) and (NH4)2[Co(H2O)5(β-HAla)]2[V10O28]·4H2O (2) have been synthesized and used for the preparation of mixed oxides as catalysts for water oxidation. Thermal decomposition of 1 and 2 at relatively low temperatures (<500 °C) leads to the formation of the solid mixed oxides CoV2O6/V2O5 (3) and Co2V2O7/V2O5 (4). The complexes (1, 2) and heterogeneous materials (3, 4) act as catalysts for photoinduced water oxidation. A modification of the thermal decomposition procedure allowed the deposition of mixed metal oxides (MMO) on a mesoporous TiO2 film. The electrodes containing Co/V MMOs in TiO2 films were used for electrocatalytic water oxidation and showed good stability and sustained anodic currents of about 5 mA cm−2 at 1.72 V versus relative hydrogen electrode (RHE). This method of functionalizing TiO2 films with MMOs at relatively low temperatures (<500 °C) can be used to produce other oxides with different functionality for applications in, for example, artificial photosynthesis.

    Analysis of current and alternative phenol based RNA extraction methodologies for cyanobacteria2009Inngår i: BMC Molecular Biology, ISSN 1471-2199, E-ISSN 1471-2199, Vol. 10, s. 79-Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The validity and reproducibility of gene expression studies depend on the quality of extracted RNA and the degree of genomic DNA contamination. Cyanobacteria are gram-negative prokaryotes that synthesize chlorophyll a and carry out photosynthetic water oxidation. These organisms possess an extended array of secondary metabolites that impair cell lysis, presenting particular challenges when it comes to nucleic acid isolation. Therefore, we used the NHM5 strain of Nostoc punctiforme ATCC 29133 to compare and improve existing phenol based chemistry and procedures for RNA extraction.

    RESULTS: With this work we identify and explore strategies for improved and lower cost high quality RNA isolation from cyanobacteria. All the methods studied are suitable for RNA isolation and its use for downstream applications. We analyse different Trizol based protocols, introduce procedural changes and describe an alternative RNA extraction solution.

    CONCLUSION: It was possible to improve purity of isolated RNA by modifying protocol procedures. Further improvements, both in RNA purity and experimental cost, were achieved by using a new extraction solution, PGTX.

    Atomic structure of cobalt-oxide nanoparticles activein light-driven catalysis of water oxidation2012Inngår i: International journal of hydrogen energy, ISSN 0360-3199, E-ISSN 1879-3487, Vol. 37, nr 10, s. 8878-8888Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The atomic structure of water-oxidizing nanoparticles (10-60 nm) formed from cobalt(II)salts and methylenediphosphonate (M2P) is investigated. These amorphous nanoparticles are of high interest for production of solar fuels. They facilitate water oxidation in a directly light-driven process using [Ru(bpy)3]2+ (bpy = 2,2’-bipyridine) as a photosensitizer and persulfate (S2O82-) as an electron acceptor. By X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) at the cobalt K-edge, cobalt L-edge and oxygen K-edge, we investigate the light-driven transition from the CoII/M2P precursor to the active catalyst, which is a layered cobalt(III) oxide with structural similarities to water-oxidizing electrocatalysts. The M2P ligand likely binds at the periphery of the nanoparticles, preventing their further agglomeration during the catalytic reaction. This system opens a possibility to link the catalytically active nanoparticles via a covalent bridge to a photosensitizer and build an artificial photosynthetic system for direct utilization of solar energy for fuel production without production of electricity as an intermediate step.

    Kinetic, Structural, and EPR Studies Reveal That Aldehyde Oxidoreductase from Desulfovibrio gigas Does Not Need a Sulfido Ligand for Catalysis and Give Evidence for a Direct Mo-C Interaction in a Biological System2009Inngår i: Journal of the American Chemical Society, ISSN 0002-7863, E-ISSN 1520-5126, Vol. 131, s. 7990-7998Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Aldehyde oxidoreductase from Desulfovibrio gigas (DgAOR) is a member of the xanthine oxidase (XO) family of mononuclear Mo-enzymes that catalyzes the oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acids. The molybdenum site in the enzymes of the XO family shows a distorted square pyramidal geometry in which two ligands, a hydroxyl/water molecule (the catalytic labile site) and a sulfido ligand, have been shown to be essential for catalysis. We report here steady-state kinetic studies of DgAOR with the inhibitors cyanide, ethylene glycol, glycerol, and arsenite, together with crystallographic and EPR studies of the enzyme after reaction with the two alcohols. In contrast to what has been observed in other members of the XO family, cyanide, ethylene glycol, and glycerol are reversible inhibitors of DgAOR. Kinetic data with both cyanide and samples prepared from single crystals confirm that DgAOR does not need a sulfido ligand for catalysis and confirm the absence of this ligand in the coordination sphere of the molybdenum atom in the active enzyme. Addition of ethylene glycol and glycerol to dithionite-reduced DgAOR yields rhombic Mo(V) EPR signals, suggesting that the nearly square pyramidal coordination of the active enzyme is distorted upon alcohol inhibition. This is in agreement with the X-ray structure of the ethylene glycol and glycerol-inhibited enzyme, where the catalytically labile OH/OH2 ligand is lost and both alcohols coordinate the Mo site in a η2 fashion. The two adducts present a direct interaction between the molybdenum and one of the carbon atoms of the alcohol moiety, which constitutes the first structural evidence for such a bond in a biological system.

    Water oxidation by manganese oxides formed from tetranuclear precursor complexes: the influence of phosphate on structure and activity2014Inngår i: Physical Chemistry, Chemical Physics - PCCP, ISSN 1463-9076, E-ISSN 1463-9084, Vol. 16, nr 24, s. 11965-11975Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Two types of manganese oxides have been prepared by hydrolysis of tetranuclear Mn(III) complexes in the presence or absence of phosphate ions. The oxides have been characterized structurally using X-ray absorption spectroscopy and functionally by O-2 evolution measurements. The structures of the oxides prepared in the absence of phosphate are dominated by di-mu-oxo bridged manganese ions that form layers with limited long-range order, consisting of edge-sharing MnO6 octahedra. The average manganese oxidation state is +3.5. The structure of these oxides is closely related to other manganese oxides reported as water oxidation catalysts. They show high oxygen evolution activity in a light-driven system containing [Ru(bpy)(3)](2+) and S2O82- at pH 7. In contrast, the oxides formed by hydrolysis in the presence of phosphate ions contain almost no di-mu-oxo bridged manganese ions. Instead the phosphate groups are acting as bridges between the manganese ions. The average oxidation state of manganese ions is +3. This type of oxide has much lower water oxidation activity in the light-driven system. Correlations between different structural motifs and the function as a water oxidation catalyst are discussed and the lower activity in the phosphate containing oxide is linked to the absence of protonable di-mu-oxo bridges.

    Voltammetric and spectroscopic characterization of early intermediates in the Co(II)-polypyridyl-catalyzed reduction of water2013Inngår i: Chemical Communications, ISSN 1359-7345, E-ISSN 1364-548X, Vol. 49, nr 77, s. 8638-8640Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Early intermediates of catalytic water reduction by a Co(II)-polypyridyl species have been characterized. Electrochemical detection of the Co(III)-hydride and time-resolved spectroscopic detection of the Co(I)-ligand intermediates provide an understanding of their reactivity in electrolytic or light-driven reduction of protons to hydrogen.

    Structural transformation of Bi1-x/3V1-xMoxO4 solid solutions for light-driven water oxidationt2016Inngår i: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, Vol. 45, nr 9, s. 3895-3904Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The influence of molybdenum content in the solid solutions of Bi1-x/V-3(1-x),MoxO4 (x = 0.05-0.20) on the morphology, band gap, structure and light -driven water oxidation properties has been studied by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray powder diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy (Raman and infrared). To find out the peculiarities of structural changes for bismuth scheelite-related oxides containing both vanadium and molybdenum crystals of Bi0.98V0.93M0.07O4 have been grown from a K-Bi V-Mo-high-temperature melt and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. For the scheelite-related framework both V and Mo were found to occupy the same positions lowering the point group symmetry of tetrahedra from 4/m to 2/m giving monoclinic distortion for solid solutions with x = 0.05----0.10. The most promising photocatalytic performance was obtained for Bi0.96Mo0.1V0.5004, in which the oxygen evolution could reach 21 mu M in 50 s under visible light of LEDs, lambda = 470 +/- 10 nm, and 820.E cm(-2) s(-1). The changes in catalytic properties are shown to be governed by a crystal structure strain with a maximum obtained for the boundary sample between the monoclinic and tetragonal phase.

    Correlating EPR and X-ray structural analysis of arsenite-inhibited forms of aldehyde oxidoreductase.2007Inngår i: Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 0949-8257, E-ISSN 1432-1327, Vol. 12, nr 3, s. 353-366Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Two arsenite-inhibited forms of each of the aldehyde oxidoreductases from Desulfovibrio gigas and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans have been studied by X-ray crystallog. and ESR (EPR) spectroscopy. The molybdenum site of these enzymes shows a distorted square-pyramidal geometry in which two ligands, a hydroxyl/water mol. (the catalytic labile site) and a sulfido ligand, have been shown to be essential for catalysis. Arsenite addn. to active as-prepd. enzyme or to a reduced desulfo form yields two different species called A and B, resp., which show different Mo(V) EPR signals. Both EPR signals show strong hyperfine and quadrupolar couplings with an arsenic nucleus, which suggests that arsenic interacts with molybdenum through an equatorial ligand. X-ray data of single crystals prepd. from EPR-active samples show in both inhibited forms that the arsenic atom interacts with the molybdenum ion through an oxygen atom at the catalytic labile site and that the sulfido ligand is no longer present. EPR and X-ray data indicate that the main difference between both species is an equatorial ligand to molybdenum which was detd. to be an oxo ligand in species A and a hydroxyl/water ligand in species B. The conclusion that the sulfido ligand is not essential to det. the EPR properties in both Mo-As complexes is achieved through EPR measurements on a substantial no. of randomly oriented chem. reduced crystals immediately followed by X-ray studies on one of those crystals. EPR satn. studies show that the electron transfer pathway, which is essential for catalysis, is not modified upon inhibition.

    Defining the Far-Red Limit of Photosystem II in Spinach2009Inngår i: The Plant Cell, ISSN 1040-4651, E-ISSN 1532-298X, Vol. 21, nr 8, s. 2391-2401Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The far-red limit of photosystem II (PSII) photochemistry was studied in PSII-enriched membranes and PSII core preparations from spinach (Spinacia oleracea) after application of laser flashes between 730 and 820 nm. Light up to 800 nm was found to drive PSII activity in both acceptor side reduction and oxidation of the water-oxidizing CaMn4 cluster. Far-red illumination induced enhancement of, and slowed down decay kinetics of, variable fluorescence. Both effects reflect reduction of the acceptor side of PSII. The effects on the donor side of PSII were monitored using electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. Signals from the S-2-, S-3-, and S-0-states could be detected after one, two, and three far-red flashes, respectively, indicating that PSII underwent conventional S-state transitions. Full PSII turnover was demonstrated by far-red flash-induced oxygen release, with oxygen appearing on the third flash. In addition, both the pheophytin anion and the Tyr Z radical were formed by far-red flashes. The efficiency of this far-red photochemistry in PSII decreases with increasing wavelength. The upper limit for detectable photochemistry in PSII on a single flash was determined to be 780 nm. In photoaccumulation experiments, photochemistry was detectable up to 800 nm. Implications for the energetics and energy levels of the charge separated states in PSII are discussed in light of the presented results.

    Copper-substituted forms of the wild type and C42A variant of rubredoxin2013Inngår i: Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, ISSN 0162-0134, E-ISSN 1873-3344, Vol. 127, s. 232-237Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to gain insights into the interplay between Cu(I) and Cu(II) in sulfur-rich protein environments, the first preparation and characterization of copper-substituted forms of the wild-type rubredoxin (Rd) from Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough are reported, as well as those of its variant C42A-Rd. The initial products appear to be tetrahedral Cu-I(S-Cys) species for the wild type (n = 4) and the variant C42A (n = 3, with an additional unidentified ligand). These species are unstable to aerial oxidation to products, whose properties are consistent with square planar Cull(S-Cys)n species. These Cu(II) intermediates are susceptible to auto-reduction by ligand S-Cys to produce stable Cu(l) final products. The original Cu(I) center in the wild-type system can be regenerated by reduction, suggesting that the active site can accommodate Cu-I(S-Cys)2 and Cys-S-S-Cys fragments in the final product. The absence of one S-Cys ligand prevents similar regeneration in the C42A-Rd system. These results emphasize the redox instability of Cu-II-(S-Cys)(n) centers.

    Artificial Photosynthesis for Solar Fuels – an Evolving Research Field within AMPEA, a Joint Programme of the European Energy Research Alliance2013Inngår i: Green, Vol. 3, nr 1, s. 43-57Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    On the path to an energy transition away from fossil fuels to sustainable sources, the European Union is for the moment keeping pace with the objectives of the Strategic Energy Technology-Plan. For this trend to continue after 2020, scientific breakthroughs must be achieved. One main objective is to produce solar fuels from solar energy and water in direct processes to accomplish the efficient storage of solar energy in a chemical form. This is a grand scientific challenge. One important approach to achieve this goal is Artificial Photosynthesis. The European Energy Research Alliance has launched the Joint Programme “Advanced Materials & Processes for Energy Applications” (AMPEA) to foster the role of basic science in Future Emerging Technologies. European researchers in artificial photosynthesis recently met at an AMPEA organized workshop to define common research strategies and milestones for the future. Through this work artificial photosynthesis became the first energy research sub-field to be organised into what is designated “an Application” within AMPEA. The ambition is to drive and accelerate solar fuels research into a powerful European field – in a shorter time and with a broader scope than possible for individual or national initiatives. Within AMPEA the Application Artificial Photosynthesis is inclusive and intended to bring together all European scientists in relevant fields. The goal is to set up a thorough and systematic programme of directed research, which by 2020 will have advanced to a point where commercially viable artificial photosynthetic devices will be under development in partnership with industry.

    A Ru-Co hybrid material based on a molecular photosensitizer and a heterogeneous catalyst for light-driven water oxidation2014Inngår i: Physical Chemistry, Chemical Physics - PCCP, ISSN 1463-9076, E-ISSN 1463-9084, Vol. 16, nr 8, s. 3661-3669Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A novel approach to anchor a molecular photosensitizer onto a heterogeneous water oxidation catalyst via coordination bonds is presented. A photosensitizer (1) based on [Ru(bpy)(3)](2+) and decorated with two methylenediphosphonate (M2P) groups has been designed and synthesized for this purpose. The M2P groups in complex 1 allow for coordination of cobalt ions to afford a novel molecular-heterogeneous hybrid material P1. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) were used to characterize P1 as an amorphous, non-uniform material that contains Ru and Co in a ratio of 1:2. A suspension of P1 in a buffered aqueous solution is active as a light-driven water oxidation catalyst in the presence of persulfate (S2O82-) as electron acceptor. The yield of oxygen is higher when P1 is prepared in situ by mixing and illuminating 1 and Co2+ in the presence of S2O82-. After oxygen evolution ceases, a second material P2 can be isolated from the reaction mixture. P2 is characterized by a lower Ru content than P1, and contains Co in a higher oxidation state. Interestingly, P2 as a freshly prepared suspension is also active for light-driven water oxidation. It is shown that 1 resides in the interior of P1 and P2, and is thus in a location where undesirable quenching pathways of the photo-excited state of 1 limit the oxygen production yields for both P1 and P2.

    Photo-Induced Water Oxidation Based on a Mononuclear Cobalt(II) Complex2014Inngår i: Chinese journal of chemistry, ISSN 1001-604X, E-ISSN 1614-7065, Vol. 32, nr 6, s. 467-473Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Photo-induced water oxidation based on first row transition metal complexes has drawn much attention recently as a part of the efforts to design systems for solar fuel production. Here, the classic tetradentate ligand TPA (tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine) is used together with cobalt(II) in CH3CN to form a mononuclear cobalt complex [Co(TPA)Cl]Cl. Single crystal X-ray diffraction shows that [Co(TPA) Cl] Cl is composed of discrete cationic units with a penta-coordinate cobalt center, along with chloride counter ions. In borate buffer, the Co complex acts as a water oxidation catalyst, as shown by the presence of a catalytic wave in electrochemistry. Under visible light irradiation, in the presence of photosensitizer and electron acceptor, the Co complex catalyzes O-2 evolution with a turnover frequency (TOF) of 1.0 mol(O-2)center dot mol(Co)(-1)center dot s(-1) and a turnover number (TON) of 55 mol(O-2)center dot mol(Co)(-1) in pH 8 borate buffer.

    Water Oxidation Catalyzed by a Dinuclear Cobalt–Polypyridine Complex2014Inngår i: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 53, nr 52, s. 14499-14502Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The dinuclear Co complex [(TPA)Co(µ-OH)(µ-O2)Co(TPA)](ClO4)3 (1, TPA=tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine) catalyzes the oxidation of water. In the presence of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ and S2O82-, photoinduced oxygen evolution can be observed with a turnover frequency (TOF) of 1.4±0.1 mol(O2) mol(1)-1 s-1 and a maximal turnover number (TON) of 585 mol(O2)mol(1)-1. The complex is shown to act as a molecular and homogeneous catalyst and a mechanismis proposed based on the combination of EPR data and light-driven O2 evolution kinetics.

    A nickel (II) PY5 complex as an electrocatalyst for water oxidation2016Inngår i: Journal of Catalysis, ISSN 0021-9517, E-ISSN 1090-2694, Vol. 335, s. 72-78Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A Ni-PY5 [PY5 = 2,6-bis(1,1-bis(2-pyridyl)ethyl)pyridine)] complex has been found to act as an electrocatalyst for oxidizing water to dioxygen in aqueous phosphate buffer solutions. The rate of water oxidation catalyzed by the Ni-PY5 is remarkably enhanced by the proton acceptor base HPO42-, with rate constant of 1820 M-1 s(-1). Controlled potential bulk electrolysis with Ni-PY5 at pH 10.8 under an applied potential of 1.5 V vs. normal hydrogen electrode (NHE) resulted in dioxygen formation with a high faradaic efficiency over 90%. A detailed mechanistic study identifies the water nucleophilic attack pathway for water oxidation catalysis.
