Abstract

We report a synthetic nickel complex containing proton relays, [Ni(P Ph 2NC6H4OH2)2](BF4) 2 (PPh 2NC6H4OH2 = 1,5-bis(p-hydroxyphenyl)-3,7-diphenyl-1,5-diaza-3,7-diphosphacyclo-octane), that catalyzes the production of H2 in aqueous acetonitrile with turnover frequencies of 750-170000 s-1 at experimentally determined overpotentials of 310-470 mV.
