Abstract

Our theoretical studies of the standard reduction potentials of the molecular complex [CoII(dmgBF2)2]0 (dmgBF2 = difluoro-boryldimethylglyoximate) in acetonitrile solution shed light on its electrocatalytic mechanism for hydrogen production. Three such mechanisms have been proposed, all proceeding through the formation of Co IIIH. Our results indicate that the mechanism involving a Co IIH intermediate is the most likely.
