Abstract

A simple strategy to immobilize highly efficient ruthenium based molecular water-oxidation catalysts on the basal-plane pyrolytic graphite electrode (BPG) by polymerization has been demonstrated. The electrode 1@BPG has obtained a high initial turnover frequency (TOF) of 10.47 s−1 at ∼700 mV overpotential, and a high turnover number (TON) up to 31600 in 1 h electrolysis.
