Oxygen-evolving complex

Index Oxygen-evolving complex

The oxygen-evolving complex (OEC), also known as the water-splitting complex, is a water-oxidizing enzyme involved in the photo-oxidation of water during the light reactions of photosynthesis. [1]

Active center (polymer science)

An active center (sometimes called active site or kinetic-chain carrier) in polymer science refers to the site on a chain carrier at which reaction occurs.
