- ... Hydrogenase enzymes use first-row transition metals to interconvert H₂ with protons and electrons, reactions that are important for the storage and recovery of energy from intermittent sources such as solar, hydroelectric, and wind. Here we present Ni(PCʸ₂Nᴳˡʸ₂)₂, a water-soluble molecular electrocatalyst with the amino acid glycine built into the diphosphine ligand framework. Proton transfer betw ...
