The electrocatalytic reduction of protons to H ₂ by [Formula] (where [Formula] in the highly acidic ionic liquid dibutylformamidium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)amide shows a strong dependence on added water. A turnover frequency of 43,000–53,000 s ⁻¹ has been measured for hydrogen production at 25 °C when the mole fraction of water (χ H₂O) is 0.72. The same catalyst in acetonitrile with added dim ...
