(Figure Presented) Splitting water: Copolymerization of the cationic water-oxidation catalyst [Ru2II(μ-bpp)(t-trpy) 2(H2O)2]3+ (1) with a cobalt cobaltabisdicarbollide monomer (2) generates a new material, "FTO/poly-(1-co-2)", that is capable of oxidizing water to molecular dioxygen with a turnover number (TN) of 250 (see picture). This represents the best performance ever obtained in a heterogeneous phase using a chemical oxidant. © 2008 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
