Efficient photocatalytic water oxidation catalyzed by polyoxometalate [Fe11(H2O)14(OH)2(W3O10)2(α-SbW9O33)6](27-) based on abundant metals.


An eleven iron-containing nanoscale inorganic polyanionic oxide cluster was reported as the first example for exceptional photocatalytic water oxidation. Under optimal conditions, a remarkable turn-over number (TON) of 1815 ± 50 and a turn-over frequency (TOF(initial)) of 6.3 s(-1) over were achieved for water oxidation.
