Solar energy conversion through ligand photodissociation Academic Article uri icon


  • We examine a new technique for photochemical conversion of solar energy based on ligand photodissociation from metal complexes. We illustrate the concept with a photogalvanic cell in which voltages are generated by photodissociation of CO from carbonylferroheme and with a cell in which the illuminated electrode is coated with an iron tetraphenylporphyrin. © 1983, American Chemical Society.
