In this work, we use density functional theory based molecular dynamics with an explicit description of methanol solvent to study the effect of cations on formic acid dehydrogenation catalyzed by a ruthenium PNP pincer complex (RuPNP). Formic acid dehydrogenation is a two step process that involves the reorientation of the formate moiety bound via its oxygen to a H bound intermediate, followed by the hydride transfer step to form CO2 and the hydrogenated catalyst. We find the reorientation step to proceed with a low barrier in methanol solvent and in the presence of a Li+ cation, while the hydride transfer is significantly hindered by the presence of cations (Li+ and K+). The cation seems to strongly stabilize the negatively charged formate moiety, hindering complete hydride transfer and resulting in a high barrier for this step. This study is a first step towards addressing the exact role of cations in formic acid dehydrogenation reactions.
