Characterization of an Fe≡N-NH2 Intermediate Relevant to Catalytic N2 Reduction to NH3.

Abstract

The ability of certain transition metals to mediate the reduction of N2 to NH3 has attracted broad interest in the biological and inorganic chemistry communities. Early transition metals such as Mo and W readily bind N2 and mediate its protonation at one or more N atoms to furnish M(N(x)H(y)) species that can be characterized and, in turn, extrude NH3.
