Abstract

Photochemical hydrogen evolution from a UiO-66-incorporated Fe2(dcbdt)(CO)6 catalyst in conjunction with a ruthenium photosensitizer and an ascorbate donor ceases after a period of irradiation, but is restored after a 60 min. resting period in the dark. Control experiments show that neither product inhibition nor pore clogging is responsible for this surprising behaviour, and intra-crystal linker scrambling is proposed as a potential explanation.
