Toward A Better Photosynthesis Mimic
The protein complex known as photosystem II plays a leading role in photosynthesis. One component of this protein, known as the oxygen-evolving complex, splits water into oxygen along with electrons and protons that are eventually used to convert carbon dioxide into organic compounds. Scientists have long sought to mimic this process by making artificial versions of the metal cluster at the heart of the oxygen-evolving complex. A team led by Chunxi Zhang of the Chinese . . .
