How Nature splits water and powers the planet

PNAS: An international research team including the Max-Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPI CEC) in Germany and The Australian National University (ANU) has published new results on how nature performs biological water splitting, a process that underpins all life on the planet. The results can be valuable for the production of CO2 free 'solar fuels'.
