Abstract

NiLi2+ are good electro-catalysts for water oxidation in phosphate or carbonate buffers. The results point out that the active oxidizing agents are L(X)NiIVOH4-(3-n+1)/(2-n+1), where X = PO4Hn(3-n)- or CO3Hn(2-n)- formed from LNiIVX2via a mechanism involving an acid catalyzed O-P or O-C bond heterolysis. Carbonate behaves differently from phosphate as it is a non-innocent ligand and it can be oxidized.
