N2-to-NH3 Conversion by a triphos–Iron Catalyst and Enhanced Turnover under Photolysis #chempaperaday 295

Another fantastic paper from one of my favorite groups. They were able to produce ammonia (again!) now with some hydride complexes. They also found out that photolysis improves the yield.  I bet they tried or they are still working on it but I am wondering if you can reduce 2 and then make a hydride or dihydride complex. As always, very nice synthetic work and characterization.
