Abstract

(Figure Presented) A photoelectrochemical cell was designed that catalyzes the photooxidation of water using visible light as the sole energy source and a molecular catalyst, [Mn4O4L6]+ (1+, L = bis(methoxyphenyl)phosphinate), synthesized from earth-abundant elements. The essential features include a photochemical charge separation system, [RuII(bipy)2(bipy(COO)2)], adhered to titania-coated FTO conductive glass, and 1+ embedded within a proton-conducting membrane (Nafion). The complete photoanode represents a functional analogue of the water-oxidizing center of natural photosynthesis.
