Abstract

A well-defined PN3-Ru pincer complex (5) bearing a redox-active bipyridine ligand with an aminophosphine arm has been established as an effective and stable molecular electrocatalyst for CO2 reduction to CO and HCOOH with negligible formation of H2 in a H2O/MeCN mixture. Done in a pince: A PN3-Ru pincer complex (see figure) has been found to show high activity and stability as a molecular electrocatalyst for CO2 reduction to CO and HCOOH in MeCN/H2O.
