Abstract

An air-stable dinuclear iron-dithiolene complex with an Fe 2(μ-S) 2 core, [Fe III(mnt) 2] 2 2- (mnt = maleonitriledithiolate), has been found to serve as an electrode catalyst toward the reduction of water into molecular hydrogen with an overpotential of 560 mV. The acid form of a buffer reagent, such as CH 3CO 2H, has been found to serve as a major proton mediator during the electrocatalytie hydrogen evolution.
