Photosystem II without Mn4CaO5-Cluster

Thu 10 August 2017

New research highlight by Holger Dau, Holger Dobbek, Athina Zouni, and coworkers reveal structural insights into the light-driven auto-assembly process of the water-oxidizing Mn4CaO5-cluster in photosystem II.

Highly Efficient Electrocatalyst for Water Splitting

Thu 20 July 2017

A highly active iron diselenide electrocatalyst was prepared at low temperature from a bioinspired 2Fe-2Se molecular complex. The catalyst was applied to bifunctional oxygen and hydrogen evolution reactions, as well as overall water splitting.
The nature of active sites and structure–activity relationships of the electrocatalyst were uncovered.
