An inherent problem stalling the development of a H2-based global energy economy is the unavailability of efficient functional catalysts that can function in aqueous media. A Fe–Fe hydrogenase mimic is investigated for electrocatalytic hydrogen generation in aqueous medium. H2 is produced from acid water (pH 95%. Even at pH 2, that is, [H]+ = 0.01 N, Icat/[τ] > 400 s–1 is obtained. The catalyst can be immobilized on cheap carbon electrodes, used in domestic Zn-Carbon dry batteries, to generate… CONTINUE READING
