Electrocatalytic H2 production with a turnover frequency >107 s−1: the medium provides an increase in rate but not overpotential

Author affiliations

Abstract

Rapid proton movement results in exceptionally fast electrocatalytic H2 production (up to 3 × 107 s−1) at overpotentials of ∼400 mV when catalysed by [Ni(PPh2NC6H4x2)2]2+ complexes in an acidic ionic liquid–water medium ([(DMF)H]NTf2–H2O, χH2O = 0.71).
