Abstract/Artist Statement

For many years, developing efficient water oxidation catalysts has been and continues to be a bottleneck in the search for a competent process for energy storage, more specifically in converting electricity into chemical energy. To achieve the goal, one of the best strategies is to obtain metal complexes with desired functions and water soluble supporting ligands. By applying quaternary ammonium groups or sulfonate anions to imine-type ligands, new water soluble ligands were designed and synthesized. Products have been characterized through NMR and/or X-ray Crystallography. Installation of redox active metals onto the ligand scaffolds have been conducted at various conditions. Observation and results from those reactions will be described in detail. The study has provided important information in understanding how the structure and solubility of the ligands influence their structural properties and reaction chemistry.
