Title: Water-assisted proton delivery and removal in bio-inspired hydrogen production catalysts

Abstract

Water is found to accelerate proton delivery and removal in electrocatalysts for H 2production, resulting in a marked increase in the catalytic rates. The significant reduction in protonation/deprotonation barriers observed in the presence of water has important implications for design catalysts with improved performance.
