Abstract

A methyl-functionalized and a dimethyl-functionalized iron polypyridyl complexes are proposed to be electrocatalytically active for proton reduction. Based on data from electrochemical analysis by cyclic voltammtery (CV), the methyl-functionalized is proven to be an active electrocatalyst for proton reduction. Several spectroscopic techniques are used to help characterize the complexes.
