Title: Noninnocent Proton-Responsive Ligand Facilitates Reductive Deprotonation and Hinders CO 2 Reduction Catalysis in [Ru(tpy)(6DHBP)(NCCH 3 )] 2+ (6DHBP = 6,6'-(OH) 2 bpy)

Abstract

Ruthenium complexes with proton-responsive ligands [Ru(tpy)(nDHBP)(NCCH 3)](CF 3SO 3) 2 (tpy = 2,2':6',2"-terpyridine; nDHBP = n,n'-dihydroxy-2,2'-bipyridine, n = 4 or 6) were examined in this study for reductive chemistry and as catalysts for CO 2 reduction. Electrochemical reduction of [Ru(tpy)(nDHBP)(NCCH 3)] 2+ generates deprotonated species through interligand electron transfer in which the initially formed tpy radical anion reacts with a proton source to produce singly and doubly deprotonated complexes that are identical to those obtained by base titration. A third reduction (i.e., reduction of [Ru(tpy)(nDHBP–2H +)] 0) triggers catalysis of CO 2 reduction; however, the catalytic efficiency is strikingly lower than that of unsubstituted [Ru(tpy)(bpy)(NCCH 3)] 2+ (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine). Cyclic voltammetry, bulk electrolysis, and spectroelectrochemical infrared experiments suggest the reactivity of CO 2 at both the Ru center and the deprotonated quinone-type ligand. Lastly, the Ru carbonyl formed by the intermediacy of a metallocarboxylic acid is stable against reduction, and mass spectrometry analysis of this product indicates the presence of two carbonates formed by the reaction of DHBP–2H + with CO 2.
