Absence of Mn-centered oxidation in the S(2) --> S(3) transition: implications for the mechanism of photosynthetic water oxidation.

Abstract

A key question for the understanding of photosynthetic water oxidation is whether the four oxidizing equivalents necessary to oxidize water to dioxygen are accumulated on the four Mn ions of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC), or whether some ligand-centered oxidations take place before the formation and release of dioxygen during the S(3) --> [S(4)] --> S(0… (More)
