Speeding up key oxygen-oxygen bond-formation step in water oxidation

By accelerating the formation of the oxygen-oxygen bond in water oxidation, newly developed ruthenium catalysts could drive the reaction needed to efficiently store solar energy in the chemical bonds of clean fuels. Initial electrochemistry studies demonstrated that these catalysts could offer a low-energy pathway to faster water oxidation.
