Homogeneous Oxidation of Water by Iron Complexes with Macrocyclic Ligands
2014 (English)In: Chemistry - An Asian Journal, ISSN 1861-4728, Vol. 9, no 6, 1515-1518 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The activity of eleven separated iron complexes and nine in situ-generated iron complexes towards catalytic water oxidation have been examined in aqueous solutions with Ce(NH4)(2)(NO3)(6) as the oxidant. Two iron complexes bearing tridentate and tetradentate macrocyclic ligands were found to be novel water oxidation catalysts. The one with tetradentate ligand exhibited a promising activity with a turnover number of 65 for oxygen evolution.
