Homogeneous visible light-driven hydrogen evolution by the molecular molybdenum sulfide model [Mo2S12]2−

Author affiliations

Abstract

The visible light-driven hydrogen evolution reaction by the molecular molybdenum sulfide anion [Mo2S12]2− is reported. When coupled with the photosensitizer [Ru(bpy)3]2+ (bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine) and the electron/proton donor ascorbic acid, turnover numbers > 1600 and turnover frequencies > 700 h−1 are observed. Comparison with the prototype HER catalyst [Mo3S13]2− shows remarkable reactivity differences which are explored by initial mechanistic studies under reaction conditions.
