Computational Investigation of the Oxygen Evolving Complex of Photosystem II and Related Models via Density Functional Theory
The first step of photosynthetic metabolism effects the facile oxidation of water to dioxygen and hydrogen cations. This is achieved through an incompletely-understood process of light-driven four-electron oxidation at the Mn4CaO5 cofactor of the Oxygen Evolving Complex (OEC) of the Photosystem II (PSII) holoenzymatic complex in photosynthetic autotrophs. Biomimesis of this reaction—artificial photosynthesis—may offer energy-efficient routes to industrial...[Show more]
