    The mechanism of extraction of electrons from H2 catalyzed by hydrogenases has proven challenging to elucidate. Catalytic extraction of electrons from H2 has been achieved by use of a low-valent Ni IRuI complex [NiI(μ-SR)2Ru I6-C6Me6)]{μ-SR) 2 = N,N′-dimethyl-N,N′-bis(2-mercaptoethyl)-1,3- propanediamine) as the active catalyst with evolution of H2 under ambient conditions. The electrons extracted from H2 have been used for a catalytic reduction of Cu2+ to Cu0 with the NiRu complexes.
