Electro- and Photo-Catalytic Reduction of Small Molecules/Ions By Corrole Metal Complexes
The impact of these investigations is exemplified by the introduction of corrole metal chelates as catalysts for the most important chemical reactions involved in energy-relevant processes, such as the hydrogen and oxygen evolution reactions. This presentation will focus on the largely unexplored potential of metallocorroles for the reduction of protons to hydrogen and of halides to halogens, via electrocatalysis and photocatalysis, respectively. Tuning of reactivity and redox potentials is achieved by variations introduced onto the ligand and the choice of coordinated metal ions.
