Abstract

In this communication, we report the synthesis, characterization, and electrochemistry of a 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-benzimidazole–manganese oxide hybrid. Our results suggest that this compound is a promising model for the manganese cluster together with tyrosine-161 and histidine-190 in photosystem II of plants, algae and cyanobacteria.
