Abstract [en]

The mechanism of water reduction catalysed by a mononuclear copper complex Cu(bztpen) (bztpen = N-benzyl-N, N', N'-tris(pyridine-2-ylmethyl) ethylenediamine) has been elucidated by DFT calculations, revealing that hydrogen evolution proceeds via coupling of a Cu(II)-hydride and a pendant pyridinium, and providing important implications for the future design of new catalytic systems for water reduction.
