Field-induced reagent concentration and sulfur adsorption enable efficient electrocatalytic semihydrogenation of alkynes

Efficient electrocatalytic alkyne semihydrogenation with potential/time-independent selectivity and Faradaic effectivity (FE) is important for industrial alkene productions. Here, sulfur-tuned results and field-induced reagent concentration are proposed to advertise electrocatalytic alkyne semihydrogenation. Density useful idea calculations reveal that bulk sulfur anions intrinsically weaken alkene adsorption, and floor thiolates decrease the activation power of water and the … Read more
