Abstract
THE WORK DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL IS GEARED TOWARD UNDERSTANDING THE CATALYTIC ACTIVITY OF -N(4) MARCROCYCLIC MONONUCLEAR AND BINUCLEAR COMPLEXES OF COBALT AND RUTHENIUM AND MANGANESE. A TUNGSTEN COMPLEX WILL ALSO BE TESTED. THE RESULTS ARE EXPECTED TO THROW LIGHT ON THE ELECTROCATALYSIS OF SOCL(2) REDUCTION AS INFLUENCED BY (A) THE NATURE OF THE METAL CENTERS, (B) A COMMON REDBOX COUPLE DUE TO THE METAL, (C) THE PRESENCE OF BIMETAL SITES, (D) LIGAND ENVIRONMENT OF THE METALS, AND (E) THE STABILITY OF THE COMPLEXED IN SOCL(2) MEDIUM. ALSO, THE ANCHORING OF SOME CATALYSTS ON POLYMERIC SUPPORT WILL BE HIGHLY INFORMATIVE AS TO HOW THIS SURFACE MODIFICATION AFFECTS THE CELL PERFORMANCE.
