Title: Unveiling new stable manganese based photoanode materials via theoretical high-throughput screening and experiments

Abstract

We computationally perform the exhaustive search of the X–Mn–O (X = Mg and Ca) chemical space for a stable new photoactive material, and discover a new photoanode compound Mg 2 MnO 4 with experimental verification.
