Abstract

Synthetic access has been achieved into high oxidation state Mn/Ca chemistry with the 4 : 1 Mn : Ca stoichiometry of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) of plants and cyanobacteria; the anion of (Et3NH)2[MnIII4Ca(O2CPh)4(shi)4] has a square pyramidal metal topology and an S = 0 ground state.
