Abstract

Copper tetrasulfonatophthalocyanine (CuPcTS) is reported to serve as a catalyst for photochemical water oxidation via a radical coupling mechanism. Chloride greatly inhibits the water oxidation rate as a result of axial chloride binding to CuPcTS, preventing formation of the Cu oxyl or hydroxyl intermediate required for O−O bond formation.
