Mimicking the electron donor side of Photosystem II in artificial photosynthesis

Abstract

This review focuses on our recent efforts in synthetic ruthenium–tyrosine–manganese chemistry mimicking the donor side reactions of Photosystem II. Tyrosine and tryptophan residues were linked to ruthenium photosensitizers, which resulted in model complexes for proton-coupled electron transfer from amino acids. A new mechanistic model was proposed and used… (More)
