Photosynthetic water oxidation is an unique fundamental biological process that occurs in the water-oxidizing complex (WOC) of the multi-component pigment-protein complex called photosystem II (PSII). Understanding this reaction can be expected to provide essential clues for the construction of efficient artificial systems that utilize the energy of sun light to split water to oxygen and hydrogen. To elucidate the basics of photosynthetic water oxidation chemistry one needs to know its energetics as well as the structure and function of all the cofactors participating in the different oxidation states, Si states (i = 0,...,4), of the WOC. This book, therefore, is focused on 1) a comparative study of the energetics of the water splitting reaction of PSII in Chlorophyll (Chl) a- and Chl d-containing organisms and, 2) on the exploration of the function and binding sites of the inorganic cofactors hydrogencarbonate (bicarbonate) and chloride within the WOC.
