Abstract

Early intermediates of catalytic water reduction by a Co(ii) polypyridyl species have been characterized. Electrochemical detection of the Co(iii)-hydride and time-resolved spectroscopic detection of the Co(i)-ligand intermediates provide an understanding of their reactivity in electrolytic or light-driven reduction of protons to hydrogen.
