Protonation states in a cobalt-oxide catalyst for water oxidation: fine comparison of ab initio molecular dynamics and X-ray absorption spectroscopy results

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of a recently proposed cobalt-based catalyst for water oxidation provide insight into the properties of protons at the water/oxide interface. Calculations and X-ray absorption spectroscopy data indicate a cubane-like structure of the catalyst, support the occurrence of protonated μ2-O atoms, suggest deprotonated μ3-O atoms and the presence of sites promoting low-barrier hydrogen bonds.
