Artificial photosynthesis

We have a broad interest in all aspects of artificial photosynthesis, but work is currently directed towards development of bio-mimetic catalysts for electrolytic H2 production. The Mn4- Ca cluster in PS II is by far the most efficient anodic water oxidising system known. Its mechanism holds the key to cost competitive and totally renewable generation of H2 fuel from water. This work involves collaboration with groups at Uppsala University, Sweden.
