- ... The 4H⁺/4e– reduction of O₂ to water, a key fuel-cell reaction also carried out in biology by oxidase enzymes, includes the critical O–O bond reductive cleavage step. Mechanistic investigations on active-site model compounds, which are synthesized by rational design to incorporate systematic variations, can focus on and resolve answers to fundamental questions, including protonation and/or H-bondi ...
