Immobilization of a Binuclear Ruthenium(III) Complex on a Gold (111) Surface : Observations of Proton-coupled Electron Transfer and Electrochemical Durability in Aqueous Media
An oxo-bridged diruthenium(III) complex was immobilized on a Au(111) electrode through the coordination by terminal pyridyl groups of self-assembled monolayer of alkyl chains, and the immobilized complex underwent proton-coupled electron-transfer reactions in a very wide pH range (2–12) with remarkable monolayer durability for multiple potential cycles.
