Abstract

Well-defined ruthenium(II) PN3P pincer complexes were developed for the hydrogenation of carbon dioxide. Excellent product selectivity and catalytic activity with TOF (turnover frequency) and TON (turnover number) up to 13 000 h−1 and 33 000, respectively, in a THF/H2O biphasic system were achieved. Notably, effective conversion of carbon dioxide from air into formate was conducted in the presence of an amine, allowing easy product separation and catalyst recycling.
