Photochemical Water-Splitting with Organomanganese Complexes

Organomanganese complexes with photolabile CO ligands are demonstrated to split water under UV irradiation. The complex [Mn(CO)33−OH)]4 (1) already contains water-derived ligands and generates H2 upon irradiation in anhydrous conditions. When water is present, a water oxidation occurs resulting in the formation of H2O2. Together, these two processes constitute the two half reactions of water splitting.
