Abstract [en]

This essay for EurJIC's special issue on "Redox Catalysis for Artificial Photosynthesis" introduces the reader to the field of water oxidation using molecular catalysts. The most essential challenge our society must address during the 21st century is perhaps the realization of a system for producing sustainable energy on the global scale. Currently, there exists an urgent need to develop effective and economical carbon-neutral or carbon-free energy technologies. The production of solar fuels through water splitting constitutes a key enabling element. The construction of robust and efficient catalysts for oxidation of water is therefore essential. In this essay the progress and mechanistic considerations pertaining to molecular water oxidation catalysts are described and discussed from a personal perspective.
