AbstractAdvanced atomically resolved characterization methods unveil the mechanism of a promising photocatalytic Co@MOF(Ti) system for H production. The combination of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) experiments allows for the characterization of atomic and electronic rearrangements in the photoinduced species. This information provides the basis for the optimization of photocatalyst design.
