Early indications for manganese oxidation state changes during photosynthetic oxygen production: A personal account
One of the major questions yet to be answered in photosynthesis research today is what is the chemical mechanism for the oxidation of water into molecular oxygen. It is well established that an inorganic cluster of four manganese ions and at least one calcium ion form the catalytic core. As the oxidation potential generated by the Photosystem II reaction center is accumulated over the four sequential steps needed to produce O2, changes in the oxidation state of the catalytic manganese occur,...[Show more]
