Photochemical water oxidation with visible light using a cobalt containing catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

Artificial photosynthesis aims at using solar light energy to oxidatively split water to oxygen, protons and electrons and store the energy in a chemical fuel. Here we present a cobalt phosphonate material that can split water catalytically, driven by visible light in aqueous solutions of pH 7.
