Proton-coupled electron transfer.
▪ Abstract Proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) is an important mechanism for charge transfer in a wide variety of systems including biology- and materials-oriented venues. We review several are...
Contemporary Issues in Electron Transfer Research
This is an overview of some of the important, challenging, and problematic issues in contemporary electron transfer research. After a qualitative discussion of electron transfer, its time andExpand
Mechanisms of water oxidation from the blue dimer to photosystem II.
Application of density functional theory calculations to molecular and electronic structure supports the proposal of strong electronic coupling across the micro-oxo bridge and reveals similarities in the mechanism with the blue dimer and significant differences. Expand
One site is enough. Catalytic water oxidation by [Ru(tpy)(bpm)(OH2)]2+ and [Ru(tpy)(bpz)(OH2)]2+.
Single-site catalytic water oxidation by the monomeric complexes [Ru(tpy)(bpm)(OH2)]2+ and [Ru[Ru( tpy)(bpz)( OH2]2+) by a well-defined mechanism involving RuV═O is reported. Expand
Nanostructured tin catalysts for selective electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide to formate.
High surface area tin oxide nanocrystals prepared by a facile hydrothermal method are evaluated as electrocatalysts toward CO2 reduction to formate and a compromise between the strength of the interaction between CO2(•-) and the nanoscale tin surface and subsequent kinetic activation toward protonation and further reduction is found.

Making oxygen with ruthenium complexes.
A general reactivity toward water oxidation in a class of molecules whose properties can be "tuned" systematically by synthetic variations based on mechanistic insight is described. Expand
The possible role of proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) in water oxidation by photosystem II.
An integrated sequence of light-driven reactions that exploit coupled electron-proton transfer (EPT) could be the key to water oxidation. Expand
