    Redox chemistry of a dimanganese(II,III) complex with an unsymmetric ligand: Water binding, deprotonation and accumulative light-induced oxidation2006In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 1434-1948, E-ISSN 1099-1948, no 24, p. 5033-5047Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A dinuclear manganese complex {[(Mn2L)-L-II,IIII(mu-OAc)(2)]-ClO4} has been synthesised, where L is the dianion of 2-{[bis-(pyrid-2-ylmethyl)amino]methyl}-6-{[(3,5-di-tert-butyl-2- hydroxybenzyl)(pyrid-2-ylmethyl)amino]methyl)-4-methylphenol, an unsymmetric binucleating ligand with two coordinating phenol groups. The two manganese ions, with a Mn-Mn distance of 3.498 angstrom, are bridged by the two bidentate acetate ligands and the 4-methylphenolate group of the ligand, resulting in a N3O3 and N2O4 donor set of Mn-II and Mn-II, respectively. Electrochemically [Mn2(II,III)L(mu-OAc)(2)](+) is reduced to [(Mn2L)-L-II,II(mu-OAc)(2)] at E-1/2(1)=-0.53 V versus Fc(+/0) and oxidised to [(Mn2L)-L-III,III(mu-OAC)(2)](2+) at E-1/2(2)=0.38 V versus Fc(+/0). All three redox states have been characterised by EPR, IR and UV/Vis spectroscopy. Subsequent oxidation of [(Mn2L)-L-II,III(mu-OAc)(2)](2+) [E-1/2(3)=0.75 V vs. Fc(+/0)] in dry acetonitrile results in an unstable primary product with a lifetime of about 100 ins. At high scan rates quasireversible voltammetric behaviour is found for all three electrode processes, with particularly slow electron transfer for the II,III/II,II [k(o)(1) = 0.002 cms(-1) and III,III/II,III [k(o)(2) = 0.005 cms(-1)] couples, which can be rationalised in terms of major distortions of the Mn-II centres. In aqueous media the bridging acetates are replaced by water-derived ligands. Deprotonation of these stabilises higher valence states, and photo-induced oxidation of the manganese complex results in a (Mn2L)-L-IlI,IV complex with oxo or hydroxo bridging ligands, which is further oxidised to an EPR-silent product. These results demonstrate that a larger number of metal-centred oxidations can be compressed in a narrow potential range if build up of charge is avoided by charge-compensating reactions.

    Redox Switching in Ethenyl- Bridged Bisphospholes2014In: Chemistry - A European Journal, ISSN 0947-6539, E-ISSN 1521-3765, Vol. 20, no 49, p. 16083-16087Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A 2e(-)/2H(+) redox platform has been implemented in the ethenyl-bridged bisphosphol-3-ol 1 to afford the first phospholes that feature chemically reversible oxidations. Oxidation of the title compounds to the corresponding bisphosphol-3-one 2 leads to a change in conjugation topology and a concomitant hypsochromic shift of the lowest-energy absorption maximum by 100nm. Electrochemical oxidation proceeds without any detectable intermediates, whereas the deprotonated form of 1 can be observed in an aprotic medium during the reduction of 2. This dianionic intermediate 3 is characterized by end absorptions that are bathochromically shifted by circa 200nm compared to those of 2.

    Metal vs. ligand protonation and the alleged proton-shuttling role of the azadithiolate ligand in catalytic H-2 formation with FeFe hydrogenase model complexes2019In: Chemical Science, ISSN 2041-6520, E-ISSN 2041-6539, Vol. 10, no 21, p. 5582-5588Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electron and proton transfer reactions of diiron complexes [Fe(2)adt(CO)(6)] (1) and [Fe(2)adt(CO)(4)(PMe3)(2)] (4), with the biomimetic azadithiolate (adt) bridging ligand, have been investigated by real-time IR- and UV-vis-spectroscopic observation to elucidate the role of the adt-N as a potential proton shuttle in catalytic H-2 formation. Protonation of the one-electron reduced complex, 1(-), occurs on the adt-N yielding 1H and the same species is obtained by one-electron reduction of 1H(+). The preference for ligand vs. metal protonation in the Fe-2(i,0) state is presumably kinetic but no evidence for tautomerization of 1H to the hydride 1Hy was observed. This shows that the adt ligand does not work as a proton relay in the formation of hydride intermediates in the reduced catalyst. A hydride intermediate 1HHy(+) is formed only by protonation of 1H with stronger acid. Adt protonation results in reduction of the catalyst at much less negative potential, but subsequent protonation of the metal centers is not slowed down, as would be expected according to the decrease in basicity. Thus, the adtH(+) complex retains a high turnover frequency at the lowered overpotential. Instead of proton shuttling, we propose that this gain in catalytic performance compared to the propyldithiolate analogue might be rationalized in terms of lower reorganization energy for hydride formation with bulk acid upon adt protonation.

    Toward Highlighting the Ultrafast Electron Transfer Dynamics at the Optically Dark Sites of Photocatalysts2013In: Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, ISSN 1948-7185, E-ISSN 1948-7185, Vol. 4, no 11, p. 1972-1976Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Building a detailed understanding of the structure function relationship is a crucial step in the optimization of molecular photocatalysts employed in water splitting schemes. The optically dark nature of their active sites usually prevents a complete mapping of the photoinduced dynamics. In this work, transient X-ray absorption spectroscopy highlights the electronic and geometric changes that affect such a center in a bimetallic model complex. Upon selective excitation of the ruthenium chromophore, the cobalt moiety is reduced through intramolecular electron transfer and undergoes a spin flip accompanied by an average bond elongation of 0.20 +/- 0.03 angstrom. The analysis is supported by simulations based on density functional theory structures (B3LYP*/TZVP) and FEFF 9.0 multiple scattering calculations. More generally, these results exemplify the large potential of the technique for tracking elusive intermediates that impart unique functionalities in photochemical devices.

    Fe-II Hexa N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complex with a 528 ps Metal-to-Ligand Charge-Transfer Excited-State Lifetime2018In: Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, ISSN 1948-7185, E-ISSN 1948-7185, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 459-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The iron carbene complex [Fe-II(btz)(3)](PF6)(2) (where btz = 3,3'-dimethyl-1,1'-bis(p-tolyl)-4,4'-bis(1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene)) has been synthesized, isolated, and characterized as a low-spin ferrous complex. It exhibits strong metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) absorption bands throughout the visible spectrum, and excitation of these bands gives rise to a (MLCT)-M-3 state with a 528 ps excited-state lifetime in CH3CN solution that is more than one order of magnitude longer compared with the MLCT lifetime of any previously reported Fe-II complex. The low potential of the [Fe(btz)(3)](3+)/[Fe(btz)(3)](2+) redox couple makes the (MLCT)-M-3 state of [Fe-II(btz)(3)](2+) a potent photo-reductant that can be generated by light absorption throughout the visible spectrum. Taken together with our recent results on the [Fe-III(btz)(3)](3+) form of this complex, these results show that the Fe-II and Fe-III oxidation states of the same Fe(btz)(3) complex feature long-lived MLCT and LMCT states, respectively, demonstrating the versatility of iron N-heterocyclic carbene complexes as promising light-harvesters for a broad range of oxidizing and reducing conditions.

    A low-spin Fe(III) complex with 100-ps ligand-to-metal charge transfer photoluminescence2017In: Nature, ISSN 0028-0836, E-ISSN 1476-4687, Vol. 543, no 7647, p. 695-+Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Transition-metal complexes are used as photosensitizers(1), in light-emitting diodes, for biosensing and in photocatalysis(2). A key feature in these applications is excitation from the ground state to a charge-transfer state(3,4); the long charge-transfer-state lifetimes typical for complexes of ruthenium(5) and other precious metals are often essential to ensure high performance. There is much interest in replacing these scarce elements with Earth-abundant metals, with iron(6) and copper(7) being particularly attractive owing to their low cost and non-toxicity. But despite the exploration of innovative molecular designs(6,8-10), it remains a formidable scientific challenge(11) to access Earth-abundant transition-metal complexes with long-lived charge-transfer excited states. No known iron complexes are considered(12) photoluminescent at room temperature, and their rapid excited-state deactivation precludes their use as photosensitizers(13-15). Here we present the iron complex [Fe(btz)(3)](3+) (where btz is 3,3'-dimethyl-1,1'-bis(p-tolyl)-4,4'-bis(1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene)), and show that the superior sigma-donor and pi-acceptor electron properties of the ligand stabilize the excited state sufficiently to realize a long charge-transfer lifetime of 100 picoseconds (ps) and room-temperature photoluminescence. This species is a low-spin Fe(III) d(5) complex, and emission occurs from a long-lived doublet ligand-to-metal charge-transfer ((LMCT)-L-2) state that is rarely seen for transition-metal complexes(4,16,17). The absence of intersystem crossing, which often gives rise to large excited-state energy losses in transition-metal complexes, enables the observation of spin-allowed emission directly to the ground state and could be exploited as an increased driving force in photochemical reactions on surfaces. These findings suggest that appropriate design strategies can deliver new iron-based materials for use as light emitters and photosensitizers.

    Ligand versus metal protonation of an iron hydrogenase active site mimic2007In: Chemistry - A European Journal, ISSN 0947-6539, E-ISSN 1521-3765, Vol. 13, no 25, p. 7075-7084Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The protonation behavior of the iron hydrogenase active-site mimic [Fe2(u-adt)(CO)4(PMe3)2] (1; adt=N-benzyl-azadithiolate) has been investigated by spectroscopic, electrochemical, and computational methods. The combination of an adt bridge and electron-donating phosphine ligands allows protonation of either the adt nitrogen to give [Fe2(μ-Hadt)(CO)4(PMe3)2]+ ([1H]+), the Fe-Fe bond to give [Fe2-(μ-adt)(μ-H)(CO)4(PMe3)2]+ ([1Hy]+), or both sites simultaneously to give [Fe2(μ-Hadt)(μ-H)(CO)4(PMe3)2]2+ ([1HHy]2+). Complex 1 and its protonation products have been characterized in acetonitrile solution by IR, 1H, and 31PNMR spectroscopy. The solution structures of all protonation states feature a basal/basal orientation of the phosphine ligands, which contrasts with the basal/apical structure of 1 in the solid state. Density functional calculations have been performed on all protonation states and a comparison between calculated and experimental spectra confirms the structural assignments. The ligand protonated complex [1H]+ (pKa =12) is the initial, metastable protonation product while the hydride [1Hy]+ (pKa=15) is the thermodynamically stable singly protonated form. Tautomerization of cation [1H]+ to [1Hy]+ does not occur spontaneously. However, it can be catalyzed by HCl (k=2.2M-1s-1), which results in the selective formation of cation [1Hy]+. The protonations of the two basic sites have strong mutual effects on their basicities such that the hydride (pKa=8) and the ammonium proton (pKa=5) of the doubly protonated cationic complex [1HHy]2+ are considerably more acidic than in the singly protonated analogues. The formation of dication [1HHy]2+ from cation [1H]+ is exceptionally slow with perchloric or trifluoromethanesulfonic acid (k= 0.15 M-1s-1), while the dication is formed substantially faster (k > 102 M-1 s-1) with hydrobromic acid. Electrochemically, 1 undergoes irreversible reduction at -2.2V versus ferrocene, and this potential shifts to -1.6, - 1.1, and -1.0 V for the cationic complexes [1H]+, [1Hy]+, and [1HHy]2+, respectively, upon protonation. The doubly protonated form [1HHy]2+ is reduced at less negative potential than all previously reported hydrogenase models, although catalytic proton reduction at this potential is characterized by slow turnover.

    Iron sensitizer converts light to electrons with 92% yield2015In: Nature Chemistry, ISSN 1755-4330, E-ISSN 1755-4349, Vol. 7, no 11, p. 883-889Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Solar energy conversion in photovoltaics or photocatalysis involves light harvesting, or sensitization, of a semiconductor or catalyst as a first step. Rare elements are frequently used for this purpose, but they are obviously not ideal for large-scale implementation. Great efforts have been made to replace the widely used ruthenium with more abundant analogues like iron, but without much success due to the very short-lived excited states of the resulting iron complexes. Here, we describe the development of an iron-nitrogen-heterocyclic-carbene sensitizer with an excited-state lifetime that is nearly a thousand-fold longer than that of traditional iron polypyridyl complexes. By the use of electron paramagnetic resonance, transient absorption spectroscopy, transient terahertz spectroscopy and quantum chemical calculations, we show that the iron complex generates photoelectrons in the conduction band of titanium dioxide with a quantum yield of 92% from the 3MLCT (metal-to-ligand charge transfer) state. These results open up possibilities to develop solar energy-converting materials based on abundant elements.

    Surface modification of carbon and metal electrodes with bistable molecular redox switches by click and amide coupling2015In: Journal of Materials Chemistry C, ISSN 2050-7526, E-ISSN 2050-7534, Vol. 3, no 38, p. 10023-10030Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ruthenium complexes [Ru(R-Ph-tpy)(bpyMeOHpy)] (Ph-tpy = 4'-(4-R-phenyl)-2,2':6',2 ''-terpyridine, R = NH2, COOH, CRCH, bpyMeOHpy = 1-[6-(2,2'-bipyridyl)]-1-(2-pyridyl)-ethanol) were covalently attached to carbon and metal electrodes by amide and click coupling reactions. Coupling agents were covalently grafted onto the electrodes by electrochemical reduction of p-functionalized diazonium tethers X-Ph-N-2(+) (X = COOH, NO2, N-3) followed by electrochemical reduction of the nitro tether. The modification of the electrode surfaces with the Ru complexes results in a hysteretic current-voltage response based on the redox-induced N-6/N5O linkage isomerism of the ambidentate pyridyl/alkoxy unit in the bpyMeOHpy chelate ligand. The immobilized complexes can be exhaustively addressed electrochemically with scan rates <= 10000 V s(-1) and can switch uniformly with kinetic and thermodynamic parameters similar to the properties of reference complexes in homogeneous solution.

    Redox hysteresis on carbon electrodes covalently modified with a bistable ruthenium complex2015In: Journal of Materials Chemistry C, ISSN 2050-7526, E-ISSN 2050-7534, Vol. 3, no 24, p. 6260-6265Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A ruthenium complex bearing an ambidentate ligand was covalently attached to glassy carbon and carbon fiber electrodes by reduction of an aryldiazonium anchoring group placed on the terpyridine spectator ligand. The diazonium grafting method results in robust attachment and yields high surface concentrations of 2.4 x 10(-10) mol cm(-2). The attached complexes can be addressed electrochemically and the electrodes were characterized with scan rates of up to 2000 V s(-1). The redox-induced N/O linkage isomerism of the pyridyl/alkoxy ambidentate ligand results in a hysteretic current-voltage response (E-1 degrees = 0.83, E-2 degrees = 0.34 V) of the modified electrodes. The immobilization has no deleterious effects on the isomerization reactions of the molecular material that proceed with thermodynamic (2.4 < pK(1) < 3.7 (Ru(III) O -> N), -6.0 < pK(2) < -4.8 (Ru(II) O -> N)) and kinetic parameters (k(b1) = 2.5 x 10(2) s(-1) (Ru(III) N -> O), k(f2) = 2.5 x 10(2) s(-1) (Ru(II) O -> N)) comparable to analogous complexes in homogeneous solution.

    Bistable Molecular Switches Based on Linkage Isomerization in Ruthenium Polypyridyl Complexes with a Ligand-Bound Ambidentate Motif2009In: Chemistry - A European Journal, ISSN 0947-6539, E-ISSN 1521-3765, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 1195-1204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electron-transfer-induced linkage isomerization was investigated in a series of bis-tridentate Ru polypyridyl complexes [Ru(L-X-OH)(Y-tpy)](2+) with ambidentate ligand L-X-OH bpy-C(R)(OH)-py (bpy-2,2'-bipyridine py-pyridine; R-H, Me, Ph, or tBu) and spectator ligand Y-tpy (tpy 2.2':6',2 ''-terpyridine, Y-p-tolyl, p-PhCO2Me, Cl, OEt, N-pyrrolidine). The ligand-bound ambidentate motif switches reversibly between N and O coordination in the Ru-II and Ru-III state,respectively. The potentials of the Ru-III/II couple differ by about 0.5 V between the isomers, and this results in a bistable electrochemical response of the molecular switches. The effects of structural modifications in form of substituents on the linking carbon atom of the ambidentate ligand and on the central pyridine moiety of the spectator ligand were investigated by electrochemical and computational methods. Differences in isomerization behavior span six orders of magnitude in rate constants and two orders of magnitude in equilibrium constants. The results can be interpreted in terms of steric and electronic substituent effects and their influence on rotational barriers, ligation geometry, and electron deficiency of the metal center.

    Molecular hysteresis in a rigid dinuclear ruthenium polypyridyl complex incorporating a ligand-bound ambidentate motif2008In: Inorganic Chemistry, ISSN 0020-1669, E-ISSN 1520-510X, Vol. 47, no 13, p. 5531-5533Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two alternative Ru-2(2+/3+) mixed-valence states are formed in the first dinuclear Ru complex with a ligand-bound ambidentate motif. The hysteretic electrochemical response follows a double-square scheme where the structure of the mixed-valence state depends on the previous isovalent state. The Ru3+ state of the pyrrolidine-substituted bisterpyridine unit is characterized by intense ligand-to-metal charge-transfer absorptions that provide a distinctive signature of the corresponding mixed-valence state.

    Catalytic Hydrogen Evolution from Mononuclear Iron(II) Carbonyl Complexes as Minimal Functional Models of the [FeFe] Hydrogenase Active Site2010In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 49, no 43, p. 8033-8036Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How much iron does it take? Mononuclear complexes [FeII(3,6-R2bdt)(CO)2(PMe3)2] (bdt=1,2-C6H4(S)2; R=H, Cl) can be reversibly protonated at the sulfur ligands, can catalyze the electrochemical reduction of protons, and are thus minimal functional models of the [FeFe] hydrogenases (see scheme). DFT calculations show that cleavage of an FeS bond leads to the generation of a free coordination site, which is crucial for the formation of hydrides that are key intermediates in the generation of hydrogen.

    Luminescence and reactivity of a charge-transfer excited iron complex with nanosecond lifetime2019In: Science, ISSN 0036-8075, E-ISSN 1095-9203, Vol. 363, no 6424, p. 249-253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Iron's abundance and rich coordination chemistry are potentially appealing features for photochemical applications. However, the photoexcitable charge-transfer states of most iron complexes are limited by picosecond or subpicosecond deactivation through low-lying metal-centered states, resulting in inefficient electron-transfer reactivity and complete lack of photoluminescence. In this study, we show that octahedral coordination of iron(Ill) by two mono-anionic facial tris-carbene ligands can markedly suppress such deactivation. The resulting complex [Fe(phtmeimb)(2)](+), where phtmeimb is {phenyl[tris(3-methylimidazol-1-ylidene)]borate}(-), exhibits strong, visible, room temperature photoluminescence with a 2.0-nanosecond lifetime and 2% quantum yield via spin-allowed transition from a doublet ligand-to-metal charge-transfer ((LMCT)-L-2) state to the doublet ground state. Reductive and oxidative electron-transfer reactions were observed for the (2)LMCTstate of [Fe(phtmeimb)(2)](+) in bimolecular quenching studies with methylviologen and diphenylamine.

    The role of colloid formation in the photoinduced H2 production with a RuII-PdII supramolecular complex: A study by GC, XPS, and TEM2008In: Journal of the American Chemical Society, ISSN 0002-7863, E-ISSN 1520-5126, Vol. 130, no 1, p. 26-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dinuclear Run(II)-Pd-II complex shows efficient H-2 production in the presence of triethylamine as a sacrificial electron and proton donor under visible light irradiation. XPS and TEM analyses reveal that photoreduction of Pd-II to Pd-0 causes dissociation of Pd from the complex to form colloids that are suggested to be the actual catalyst for H-2 production.

    Accelerating proton-coupled electron transfer of metal hydrides in catalyst model reactions2018In: Nature Chemistry, ISSN 1755-4330, E-ISSN 1755-4349, Vol. 10, no 8, p. 881-887Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Metal hydrides are key intermediates in catalytic proton reduction and dihydrogen oxidation. There is currently much interest in appending proton relays near the metal centre to accelerate catalysis by proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET). However, the elementary PCET steps and the role of the proton relays are still poorly understood, and direct kinetic studies of these processes are scarce. Here, we report a series of tungsten hydride complexes as proxy catalysts, with covalently attached pyridyl groups as proton acceptors. The rate of their PCET reaction with external oxidants is increased by several orders of magnitude compared to that of the analogous systems with external pyridine on account of facilitated proton transfer. Moreover, the mechanism of the PCET reaction is altered by the appended bases. A unique feature is that the reaction can be tuned to follow three distinct PCET mechanisms-electron-first, proton-first or a concerted reaction-with very different sensitivities to oxidant and base strength. Such knowledge is crucial for rational improvements of solar fuel catalysts.

    Spectral and kinetic identification of radical cations of pyrimidine bases by stepwise electron transfer1998In: Chemical Physics Letters, ISSN 0009-2614, E-ISSN 1873-4448, Vol. 288, no 1, p. 47-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Radical cations of methylated derivatives of uracil and thymine were generated by electron transfer to the parent radical cation, generated in acetone by nanosecond pulse radiolysis. The resulting transient absorption peaking around 400 and 550 nm is assigned to the radical cations of the pyrimidine bases. Direct kinetic and spectroscopic evidence for this assignment has been given by a subsequent electron transfer from triphenylamine to the pyrimidine radical cations yielding the characteristic absorption spectrum of the triphenylamine radical cation.

    Genuine pyrimidine radical cations generated by radiation-induced electron transfer to butyl chloride or acetone parent ions1999In: Journal of Physical Chemistry A, ISSN 1089-5639, E-ISSN 1520-5215, Vol. 103, no 15, p. 2641-2648Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Radical cations of multiple methylated uracils and thymines were generated by electron transfer to parent ions of solvents of low polarity such as n-butyl chloride and acetone. Pulse radiolysis resulted in the transient optical absorption spectra of the pyrimidine radical cations (Py.+) which exhibit bands generally peaking around lambda = 400 nm and in acetone showing an additional band in the range of lambda(max) = 500-560 nm. The identification of the solute radical cations is based on the direct observation of the formation of Py.+ by electron transfer (k = (1-2) x 10(10) M(-1)s(-1)), the nucleophilic reaction with the counterion (e.g., Cl-), the relatively low reactivity with oxygen even for the fully methylated nitrogen groups (k < 2 x 10(8) M(-1)s(-1)), and the observation of a subsequent electron transfer from triphenylamine to the pyrimidine radical cations proceeding in a diffusion-controlled manner. The solvent dependence of the spectral shape of Py.+ was also studied in acetone/n-butyl chloride mixtures and was found to depend on the polarity of the surroundings. This phenomenon is explained in terms of a lactam-lactim-like tautomerism of the transient involving the whole plane molecule. Quantum chemical calculations support the experimental findings by explaining the spectral structure and enable the formulation of the lactims as either 1,4- or 3,4-localized.

    Transients of the oxidation of pyrimidines with SO4•-: Structure and reactivity of the resulting radicals1999In: Journal of Physical Chemistry A, ISSN 1089-5639, E-ISSN 1520-5215, Vol. 103, no 33, p. 6571-6579Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Depending on the methylation pattern, the reaction of SO4.- with various methylated pyrimidines yields radicals deprotonated at N(1) and C(5)-OH or C(6)-OH adduct radicals and probably allyl radicals by subsequent deprotonation at the C(5)-methyl group of the thymines. All of these radicals are derived from the initial SO4.- adducts on the pyrimidines that have lifetimes of several microseconds in the case of N(1)-methylated thymines. These transients could be taken for long lived pyrimidine radical cations. However, spectral and kinetic comparison with the pyrimidine radical cations generated by electron transfer in nonpolar solvents (butyl chloride, acetone) reveals the adduct nature of these transients. In the course of sulfate adduct decay, pyrimidine radical cations could be formed as nondetectable short-lived (tau < 20ns) intermediates rapidly reacting to the above-mentioned radical products. The reactivity of the SO4.- adducts, as well as that of the other pyrimidinyl radicals observed, was characterized by the subsequent oxidation of triphenylamine and di- or trimethoxybenzene, which supports the mechanistic interpretation given above. Hence there is no indication of long-lived pyrimidine radical cations under the conditions of the SO4.- oxidation of pyrimidines in aqueous solution.

    Redox-Stimulated Motion and Bistability in Metal Complexes and Organometallic Compounds2013In: Antioxidants and Redox Signaling, ISSN 1523-0864, E-ISSN 1557-7716, Vol. 19, no 15, p. 1803-1814Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Significance: Control over reversible changes to molecular structure forms the basis for artificial molecular machines that could eventually lead to the development of molecule-based nanotechnology. Recent Advances: Particular applications in information storage and processing could emerge where the structural rearrangements give rise to bistability and molecular hysteresis effects. Critical Issues: Oxidation-state-dependent coordination and bonding preferences in transition metal complexes and organometallic compounds provide a versatile approach to the control of molecular motions by redox input, but so far, few structural motifs have been applied in redox-actuated molecular machines. Future Directions: Further progress toward molecule-based nanoscale devices might be accomplished with molecular components derived from a wider range of structural themes and forms of molecular motion. Examples of redox-stimulated rearrangements in metal complexes and organometallic compounds are described that have been employed in molecular machines or could be considered for the design of new functional molecules.

    Introducing a dark reaction to photochemistry: photocatalytic hydrogen from [FeFe] hydrogenase active site model complexes2009In: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, no 45, p. 9952-9959Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The light-driven splitting of water into its constituting elements gives access to a valuable fuel from an abundant substrate, using sunlight as the only energy source. Synthetic diiron complexes as functional models of the [FeFe] hydrogenase H(2)ase enzyme active site have moved into the centre of focus as potentially viable catalysts for the reductive side of this process, i.e. the reduction of protons to molecular hydrogen. The active site of the enzyme, as well as its mimics in an artificial system, are required to accumulate two electrons from single electron transfer events and to combine them with two protons to form hydrogen. Whereas in biology this reaction is not coupled to photosynthesis and thus proceeds in the dark, additional aspects need to be considered when designing a functional artificial system for the light-driven reduction of protons. Suitable photosensitizers have to be chosen that not only provide sufficient driving force for the reduction of the synthetic diiron catalyst, but also allow for selective excitation to minimize photodegradation. Electron transfer efficiencies have to be optimized for all steps and the sequential nature of the catalyst reduction requires a sufficient stability of potentially labile intermediates of the catalytic cycle. In this perspective, systems for the light-driven conversion of protons to molecular hydrogen are discussed where the catalyst is based on model complexes of the [FeFe] H(2)ase active site. Covalently linked dyads, supramolecular assemblies and multi-component systems will be examined with an emphasis on mechanistic electron transfer schemes, the properties of the individual components, their scope and their potential limitations.

    Biomimetic and Microbial Approaches to Solar Fuel Generation2009In: Accounts of Chemical Research, ISSN 0001-4842, E-ISSN 1520-4898, Vol. 42, no 12, p. 1899-1909Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Photosynthesis is performed by a multitude of organisms, but in P nearly all cases, it is variations on a common theme: absorption of light followed by energy transfer to a reaction center where charge separation takes place, This initial form of chemical energy is stabilized by the biosynthesis of carbohydrates. To produce these energy-rich products, a substrate is needed that feeds in reductive equivalents, When photosynthetic microorganisms learned to use water as a substrate some 2 billion years ago, a fundamental barrier against unlimited use of solar energy was overcome. The possibility of solar energy use has inspired researchers to construct artificial photosynthetic systems that show analogy to parts of the intricate molecular machinery of photosynthesis. Recent years have seen a reorientation of efforts toward creating integrated light-to-fuel systems that can use solar energy for direct synthesis of energy-rich compounds, so-called solar fuels. Sustainable production of solar fuels is a long awaited development that promises extensive solar energy use combined with long-term storage. The stoichiometry of water splitting into molecular oxygen, protons, and electrons is deceptively simple; achieving it by chemical catalysis has proven remarkably difficult. The reaction center Photosystem II couples light-induced charge separation to an efficient molecular water-splitting catalyst, a Mn4Ca complex, and is thus an important template for biomimetic chemistry. In our aims to design biomimetic manganese complexes for light-driven water oxidation, we link photosensitizers and charge-separation motifs to potential catalysts in supramolecular assemblies. In photosynthesis, production of carbohydrates demands the delivery of multiple reducing equivalents to CO2. In contrast, the two-electron reduction of protons to molecular hydrogen is much less demanding. Virtually all microorganisms have enzymes called hydrogenases that convert protons to hydrogen, many of them with good catalytic efficiency. The catalytic sites of hydrogenases are now the center of attention of biomimetic efforts, providing prospects for catalytic hydrogen production with inexpensive metals. Thus, we might complete the water-to-fuel conversion: light + 2H(2)O -> 2H(2) + O-2 This reaction formula is to some extent already elegantly fulfilled by cyanobacteria and green algae, water-splitting photosynthetic microorganisms that under certain conditions also can produce hydrogen. An alternative route to hydrogen from solar energy is therefore to engineer these organisms to produce hydrogen more efficiently. This Account describes our original approach to combine research in these two fields: mimicking structural and functional principles of both Photosystem II and hydrogenases by synthetic chemistry and engineering cyanobacteria to become better hydrogen producers and ultimately developing new routes toward synthetic biology.

    Evaluation of two- and three-dimensional electrode platforms for the electrochemical characterization of organometallic catalysts incorporated in non-conducting metal-organic frameworks2017In: Dalton Transactions, ISSN 1477-9226, E-ISSN 1477-9234, Vol. 46, no 15, p. 4907-4911Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of a reliable platform for the electrochemical characterization of a redox-active molecular diiron complex, [FeFe], immobilized in a non-conducting metal organic framework (MOF), UiO-66, based on glassy-carbon electrodes is reported. Voltammetric data with appreciable current responses can be obtained by the use of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) or mesoporous carbon (CB) additives that function as conductive scaffolds to interface the MOF crystals in "three-dimensional" electrodes. In the investigated UiO-66-[FeFe] sample, the low abundance of [FeFe] in the MOF and the intrinsic insulating properties of UiO-66 prevent charge transport through the framework, and consequently, only [FeFe] units that are in direct physical contact with the electrode material are electrochemically addressable.

    Direct Observation of Key Catalytic Intermediates in a Photoinduced Proton Reduction Cycle with a Diiron Carbonyl Complex2014In: Journal of the American Chemical Society, ISSN 0002-7863, E-ISSN 1520-5126, Vol. 136, no 50, p. 17366-17369Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The structure and reactivity of intermediatesin the photocatalytic cycle of a proton reductioncatalyst, [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6] (bdt = benzenedithiolate), wereinvestigated by time-resolved spectroscopy. The singlyreduced catalyst [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]−, a key intermediate inphotocatalytic H2 formation, was generated by reactionwith one-electron reductants in laser flash-quench experimentsand could be observed spectroscopically on thenanoseconds to microseconds time scale. From UV/visand IR spectroscopy, [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]− is readilydistinguished from the two-electron reduced catalyst[Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]2− that is obtained inevitably in theelectrochemical reduction of [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]. For thedisproportionation rate constant of [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]−, anupper limit on the order of 107 M−1 s−1 was estimated,which precludes a major role of [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]2− inphotoinduced proton reduction cycles. Structurally [Fe2-(bdt)(CO)6]− is characterized by a rather asymmetricallydistorted geometry with one broken Fe−S bond and sixterminal CO ligands. Acids with pKa ≤ 12.7 protonate[Fe2(bdt)(CO)6]− with bimolecular rate constants of 4 ×106, 7 × 106, and 2 × 108 M−1 s−1 (trichloroacetic,trifluoroacetic, and toluenesulfonic acids, respectively).The resulting hydride complex [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6H] istherefore likely to be an intermediate in photocatalyticcycles. This intermediate resembles structurally andelectronically the parent complex [Fe2(bdt)(CO)6], withvery similar carbonyl stretching frequencies.

    Pyrene–Azobenzene Dyads and Their Photochemistry2014In: European Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 1434-193X, E-ISSN 1099-0690, Vol. 2014, no 5, p. 966-972Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The facile synthesis of three new folding azobenzene-pyrene systems 13, connected together by a serendipitously obtained and unpredicted ester linkage, is reported. Additional characterization of the photochemistry of these systems revealed variations in azobenzene photoisomerization (trans-cis and cis-trans) and quenching of pyrene fluorescence, as a result of intra-excitation energy transfer from the pyrene chromophore to an azobenzene. Through the use of aryl substituent electronic effects to tune the absorption properties of the azobenzene relative to the pyrene, we show that efficient photo-switching can be achieved when the trans-azobenzene absorbance band is well separated from that of the pyrene (compound 1), whereas overlap of the corresponding absorbance bands in the cases of 2 and 3 significantly compromises trans-cis isomerization by enhancing cis-trans interconversion.
