Abstract

original image

Teamwork: A new intermolecular heterobimetallic system for photocatalytic water reduction, consisting of a photosensitizer of the type [Ru(bpy)2(L)](PF6)2 (L=bidentate ligand), a dichloro palladium complex PdCl2(L) serving as the water reduction catalyst, and triethyl amine as electron donor, is presented. Variations of the ligand as well as of the palladium source results in a significant improvement of the performance of the catalyst system.
