The oxygen clock refers to a cycle of reactions by which photosynthesis converts water to oxygen. Manganese atoms of a multipolypeptide complex called photosystem II are key players in this reaction. that reveals how x-ray absorption spectroscopy was used to examine photosystem II and the manganese atoms. The powerful approach has uncovered a new chemical intermediate in the final step of water oxidation and oxygen formation.
