Electrocatalysts Ni(PR2NR′2)2 substituted with dipeptides were used for the oxidation of formate. Polar substituents resulted in a significant loss in activity, which was recovered upon protection of these groups. This work adds to our growing understanding of the role of the outer coordination sphere in molecular electrocatalysis.
