This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Iron(III) tetra(5,10,15,20-thienyl)porphyrin chloride (FeTThP) is introduced as a new CO2 reduction catalyst. The optical and electrochemical properties, as well as the CO2 reduction capabilities of FeTThP are directly compared to those of iron(III) tetra(5,10,15,20-phenyl)porphyrin chloride (FeTPP). Relative to FeTPP, the newly developed FeTThP achieves a higher TONCO, with comparable faradaic efficiency, using a much lower overpotential.
