Various oxidation states of the catalytically active cobalt center ina covalent dyad were electrochemically prepared and the light induced excited-state processes were studied. Virtually identical deactivation processes are observed, irrespective of the oxidation tate of the cobalt center, varying from CoIII to CoI, indicating the absence of oxidative quenching within the dye-catalyst assembly.
