Abstract

original image

Vier ist die Zahl: Der einkernige Ruthenium(II)-Komplex [1]2+ wird durch elektrochemische und photochemische Redoxreaktionen in wässriger Lösung reversibel in die vierelektronenreduzierte Form [1-H4]2+ überführt. Der 2,6-Bis(benzo[b]-1,5-naphthyridin-6-yl)-4-tert-butylpyridin-Ligand fungiert dabei abwechselnd als Reservoir/Quelle für vier Elektronen oder vier Protonen.
