Theoretical studies of the mechanism of catalytic hydrogen production by a cobaloxime

Author affiliations

Abstract

Our theoretical studies of the standard reduction potentials of the molecular complex [CoII(dmgBF2)2]0 (dmgBF2 = difluoro-boryldimethylglyoximate) in acetonitrile solution shed light on its electrocatalytic mechanism for hydrogen production. Three such mechanisms have been proposed, all proceeding through the formation of CoIIIH. Our results indicate that the mechanism involving a CoIIH intermediate is the most likely.
