The new Ru-complex 8 containing the bio-inspired ligand 7 was successfully synthesized and characterized. Complex 8 could efficiently catalyze water oxidation using CeIV and RuIII as chemical oxidants. More importantly, this complex has sufficiently low overpotential to utilize ruthenium polypyridyl-type complexes as photosensitizers.
