Regulation of a cerium(iv)-driven O2 evolution reaction using composites of liposome and lipophilic ruthenium complexes†
A composite containing a liposome and a lipophilic ruthenium complex was synthesized to regulate an O2 evolution reaction using cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate as an oxidizing reagent. We found that the surrounding environment of the reaction centre is an important factor for controlling the O2 evolution catalytic reaction. We successfully regulated the reaction activity using the linker length of the lipophilic ligand and using the head groups of the phospholipid component.
