Keep 'em separated: Pores of a MOF were used to isolate a highly reactive water-oxidation catalyst (MnIII(μ-O)2MnIV; spheres in picture). The resulting construct shows highly sustained water oxidation, with minimized intermolecular degradative side-reactions. This system provides a simple path to extend the lifetime of reactive catalysts without compromising their molecular definition and reactivity.
