It's what's inside that counts! Amorphous oxides are a high-interest material class in energy science. Rather than at the outer surface, catalysis of water oxidation by an amorphous cobalt oxide takes place inside the hydrated oxide material. Unprotonated buffer molecules of the electrolyte solution are likely to pick up protons at the surface of the catalyst material (see picture).
