Abstract

Newly designed and prepared molybdenum-nitride complexes bearing a mer-tridentate triphosphine as a ligand have been found to work as the most effective catalysts toward the catalytic reduction of dinitrogen to ammonia under ambient conditions, where up to 63 equiv of ammonia based on the Mo atom of the catalyst were produced.
