Abstract

We report a synthetic nickel complex containing proton relays, [Ni(PPh2NC6H4OH2)2](BF4)2 (PPh2NC6H4OH2 = 1,5-bis(p-hydroxyphenyl)-3,7-diphenyl-1,5-diaza-3,7-diphosphacyclo-octane), that catalyzes the production of H2 in aqueous acetonitrile with turnover frequencies of 750–170 000 s−1 at experimentally determined overpotentials of 310–470 mV.
