A Selective Review on Synthetic Oxo - Bridged Polynuclear High - Valent Manganese Centers related to Oxygen Evolving Complex of Photosynthesis

Dr. Suranjana Chatterjee [2]


Abstract: The oxygen - evolving complex (OEC) oxidises water to molecular dioxygen in photosystem II (PS II) at the redox catalytic centre on the lumenal side of PS II, which includes four manganese ions, a calcium ion and a chloride ion. Exact structure or mechanistic pathways charge transfer inside of OEC is still subject to research. Many inorganic complexes have been synthesised which show structural or functional resemblance with OEC. Theses complexes helps us in understanding election transfer mechanisms operating in different steps of the oxygen - evolving complex.


Keywords: Oxygen - evolving complex. Photosynthesis, oxo - bridge, Manganese
