    Jack of all trades: A fuel cell based on a single molecular catalyst (see picture) uses a [NiFe]hydrogenase mimic to catalyze the oxidation of H 2. Crucially, the catalyst is also active for the reduction of O 2, allowing the construction of a fully functional fuel cell. This molecular catalyst can function both in solid and solution phases, allowing precise observation of the mechanism.
