Abstract [en]

Noble-metal-free systems with bio-inspired diiron dithiolate mimics of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase active site, namely, [(mu-pdt)Fe2(CO)5L] [pdt=propanedithiolate; L=P(CH2OH)3 (1), P(CH3)3 (2)], as water reduction catalysts with xanthene dyes as photosensitizers and triethylamine as a sacrificial electron donor were studied for visible-light-driven water reduction to hydrogen. These systems display good catalytic activities with the efficiencies in hydrogen evolution of up to 226 turnovers for 1, if Eosin Y was used as the photosensitizer in an environmentally benign solvent (EtOH/H2O) after 15 h of irradiation (?>450 nm) under optimal conditions. Under all of the conditions adopted, 1 that has a water soluble phosphine ligand, P(CH2OH)3 displayed a higher efficiency than 2, which bears a PMe3 ligand. The photoinduced electron transfer in the systems was studied using fluorescence, transient absorption, time-resolved UV/Vis, and in situ electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. A new electron-transfer mechanism is proposed for hydrogen evolution by these iron-based photocatalytic systems.
