Photochemical hydrogen evolution from water by a 1D-network of octahedral Ni6L8 cages

Author affiliations

Abstract

A self-assembled M6L8 type cage-connected 1D-coordination network of formula {[Ni6(MeSi(3py)3)8Cl9(H2O)2]Cl3·16H2O} (1) was obtained from a 3-pyridyl substituted silane ligand MeSi(3py)3. This complex shows significantly high performance for the electrocatalytic and photocatalytic hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in water. A maximum turnover number (TON) of 2824 has been observed for photocatalytic HER after 69 h.
