Proton-coupled electron transfer at modified electrodes by multiple pathways.

In single site water or hydrocarbon oxidation catalysis with polypyridyl Ru complexes such as [Ru(II)(Mebimpy)(bpy)(H(2)O)](2+) [where bpy is 2,2'-bipyridine, and Mebimpy is 2,6-bis(1-methylbenzimidazol-2-yl)pyridine] 2, or its surface-bound analog [Ru(II)(Mebimpy)(4,4'-bis-methlylenephosphonato-2,2'-bipyridine)(OH(2))](2+) 2-PO(3)H(2), accessing the… CONTINUE READING
