Abstract

The catalytic photocleavage of CS2 to S8 and a (CxSy)n polymer with visible light using a dinuclear ruthenium(II) compound with a bipyridine units for photoactivity and a vicinal tertiary amine binding site for CS2 activation was studied. The catalyst was characterized by X-ray diffraction, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR, ESI-MS and elemental analysis. CS2 photocleavage was significant (240 turnovers, 20 h) to yield isolable S8 and a (CxSy)n polymer. A mononuclear catalyst or one without an amine binding site showed significantly less activity. XPS of the (CxSy)n polymer showed a carbon/sulfur ratio ∼1.5-1.6 indicating that in part both C-S bonds of CS2 had been cleaved. Catalyst was also included within the polymer. The absence of peaks in the 1H NMR verified the (CxSy)n nature of the polymer, while 13C NMR and IR indicated that the polymer had multiple types of C-S and C-C bonds.
