Inspired by nature: light driven organometallic catalysis by heterooligonuclear Ru(II) complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

In view of diminishing resources and an ever increasing demand for energy attention has been directed towards the development of new photocatalytic systems modelling natural photosynthesis. Recent investigations have shown that supramolecular devices consisting of photosynthetic reaction centres and catalyst metals—connected via bridging ligands—are capable of performing light driven catalytic reactions such as hydrogen production, reduction of CO2, and conversion reactions of olefins.
