The Biomimetic Inspiration for Renewable Hydrogen Fuel Production from Water Oxidation within Artificial Photosynthesis

Pace, Ronald; Stranger, Robert


The thermodynamic constraints for the operation of the water oxidizing Mn4/Ca cluster within Photosystem II (PS II) are discussed. These are then examined in the light of the known redox chemistry of hydrated Mn-oxo systems and relevant model compounds. It is shown that the latest high resolution crystal structure of cyanobacterial PS II suggests an organization of the mono Ca tetranuclear Mn cluster that naturally accommodates the stringent requirements for successive redox potential...[Show more]
