Fezile Lakadamyali, Dr. Masaru Kato, Dr. Nicoleta M. Muresan and Dr. Erwin Reisner Inside Back Cover: Selective Reduction of Aqueous Protons to Hydrogen with a Synthetic Cobaloxime Catalyst in the Presence of Atmospheric Oxygen (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 37/2012) Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
The economical splitting of water into the fuel H2 and the by-product O2 requires inexpensive catalysts that operate in aqueous solution and in the presence of O2. In their Communication on page 9381 ff., E. Reisner et al. show that a synthetic cobalt catalyst evolves H2 electro- and photocatalytically under the highly demanding conditions of pH-neutral water and under atmospheric O2. The picture shows the preference of the cobalt catalyst for aqueous protons, and the evolution of H2 bubbles upon irradiation with visible light in air.
