Abstract

A μ-oxido-bridged triruthenium complex (RuT2+), formed by air-oxidation of a previously reported monoruthenium water oxidation catalyst (WOC), serves as an efficient photochemical WOC with the turnover frequency (TOF) and turnover number (TON) 0.90 s−1 and 610, respectively. The crystal structures of RuT2+ and its one-electron oxidized RuT3+ are also reported.
