Ascorbate as an electron relay between an irreversible electron donor and Ru(ii) or Re(i) photosensitizers


Bachmann, Cyril; Probst, Benjamin; Guttentag, Miguel; Alberto, Roger (2014). Ascorbate as an electron relay between an irreversible electron donor and Ru(ii) or Re(i) photosensitizers. Chemical Communications, 50(51):6737-6739.

Abstract

Ascorbate acts as a reversible electron shuttle between tris(2-carboxyethyl) phosphine (TCEP) and ReI or RuII photosensitizers. Oxidized ascorbate is recycled up to 50 times by the TCEP → TCEP[double bond, length as m-dash]O redox process which enables 30 000 TONs per WRC in photocatalytic hydrogen production, thus exceeding the performance with pure ascorbate by far.
