Abstract

Newly designed and prepared vanadium complexes bearing anionic pyrrole-based PNP-type pincer and aryloxy ligands were found to work as effective catalysts for the direct conversion of molecular dinitrogen into ammonia and hydrazine under mild reaction conditions. This is the first successful example of vanadium-catalyzed dinitrogen reduction under mild reaction conditions.
