Solar fuels: Dinuclear ruthenium catalysts prepared from two covalently bridged monomeric catalytic units show outstanding activities towards the oxidation of water with high turnover numbers up to 43 000 and turnover frequencies up to 40 s-1 (see picture). Direct comparison of the performance parameters indicates that the dimers are significantly more active as catalysts than the monomers.
