Abstract

original image

Solare Brennstoffe: Zweikernige Rutheniumkomplexe, die aus zwei kovalent verknüpften katalytischen Einheiten bestehen, zeigen hervorragende Aktivitäten in der Wasser-Oxidation mit Umsatzzahlen von bis zu 43 000 und Umsatzfrequenzen von bis zu 40 s−1 (siehe Bild). Ein direkter Vergleich der Parameter zeigt, dass die Dimere deutlich aktivere Katalysatoren sind als die Monomere.
