Electrochemical and Photoelectrochemical Water Oxidation by Supported Cobalt-Oxo Cubanes
2014 (English)In: ACS Catalysis, ISSN 2155-5435, Vol. 4, no 3, 804-809 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Cobalt-oxo cubane clusters were immobilized on a Nafion film-coated fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) electrode and an alpha-Fe2O3 photoanode as surface catalysts for water oxidation. The performance of electrochemical water splitting indicated that these earth-abundant metal complexes retain their homogeneous reactivity on the electrode. Furthermore, efficient visible light-driven water oxidation was realized by coupling a molecular electrocatalyst with an inorganic semiconductor as a noble metal-free photoanode, showing a stability significantly improved with respect to that of the homogeneous system.
