Abstract

The performance of a water-soluble cobalt porphyrin ([{meso-tetra(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphyrinato}cobalt(III)], CoTPPS) as a catalyst for the photoreduction of CO2 in fully aqueous media has been investigated under visible light irradiation using [Ru(bpy)3]2+ as a photosensitizer and ascorbate as a sacrificial electron donor. CO is selectively produced (>82%) with high efficiency (926 TONCO; TONCO = turnover number for CO). Upon optimization, selectivities of at least 91% are achieved. Efficiencies up to 4000 TONCO and 2400 h-1 TOFCO (TOFCO = turnover frequency for CO) are reached at low catalyst loadings, albeit with loss in selectivity. This work successfully demonstrates the ability of CoTPPS to perform highly efficient photoreduction of CO2 in water while retaining its high selectivity for CO formation.
