Abstract:Catalytic reduction of CO$_{2}$ to produce chemical fuels is a viable strategy for meeting the growing demand for renewable energy, but better catalysts are needed to perform this chemistry on an industrial scale. The first step in designing improved catalysts is understanding key molecular properties of existing catalysts, which includes characterizing the structures and intramolecular forces of species in the catalytic cycle. Metal bipyridine complexes have been shown to efficiently reduce CO$_{2}$ with long catalyst lifetimes$\footnote{Inorg. Chem. 2010, 49, 9283–9289}$. We prepared gas-phase ions of metal centers (Ni, Co, Cu) coordinated with substituted bipyridine ligands and a formate adduct. Infrared photodissociation spectroscopy was performed on each complex, and DFT calculations were carried out to assign peaks in the IR spectra.
