Water oxidation is a key process in photosynthesis. It provides electrons and protons for the fixation of carbon dioxide and also releases dioxygen that is essential for the biosphere. In photosystem Ⅱ, the oxygen evolution center, a complex composed of four manganese atoms and one calcium atom, catalyzes the oxidation of water. Design and synthesis of efficient and stable water oxidation catalysts (WOCs) has attracted major attention in the field of artificial photosynthesis. Previous studies… CONTINUE READING
