Abstract

The main objective of this review is to give a general overview of the structure, electrochemistry (when available), and catalytic performance of the Ru complexes, which are capable of oxidizing water to molecular dioxygen, and to highlight their more relevant features. The description of the Ru catalysts is mainly divided into complexes that contain a Ru-O-Ru bridging group and those that do not. Finally a few conclusions are drawn from the global description of all of the catalysts presented here, and some guidelines for future catalyst design are given.
