Water splitting is considered as a method to storage of renewable energies to hydrogen. The water-oxidation reaction in water splitting is an efficiency-limiting process for water splitting, and thus, there has been notable progress to find highly efficient wateroxidizing catalysts made from cost-effective and earth-abundant elements. In addition to efficiency, the stability of the water-oxidizing compounds is very important. Herein we focus on self-healing in manganese-based water-oxidizing catalysts in artificial photosynthetic systems.
