Peter Sponholz, Dörthe Mellmann, Dr. Henrik Junge and Prof. Matthias Beller Towards a Practical Setup for Hydrogen Production from Formic Acid ChemSusChem 6
Formic acid cracker: A mini plant that allows for continuous formic acid decomposition to hydrogen and carbon dioxide under ambient conditions is presented. By using an in situ-formed ruthenium catalyst, unprecedented turnover numbers over 1 000 000 are achieved. The active catalyst is formed in situ from commercially available [RuCl2(benzene)]2 and 1,2-bisdiphenylphosphinoethane.
