Development of bioinspired Mn4O4-cubane water oxidation catalysts: lessons from photosynthesis.

Abstract

Hydrogen is the most promising fuel of the future owing to its carbon-free, high-energy content and potential to be efficiently converted into either electrical or thermal energy. The greatest technical barrier to accessing this renewable resource remains the inability to create inexpensive catalysts for the solar-driven oxidation of water. To date, the… (More)
