Catalytic reduction of molecular nitrogen in solutions

  • A. E. Shilov
Article

Abstract

Reports on nitrogen fixation in solution are reviewed. The optimum catalyst is the polynuclear complex. The reaction proceeds as a multielectron process, and the limiting step involves the electron transfer from a reducing agent.
