Hydrogen production by artificial photosynthetic water splitting is an efficient approach to convert solar ennergy into chemical bonds. Oxygenation of an organic substrate based on light-driven water oxidation is innovative way to mimic the oxygen evolving center (OEC) in Photosystem Ⅱ. The metal catalyst will accomplish H2O activation to generate high valent metal-oxo intermediate, which can transfer the oxygen atom to an organic substrate, during which the H atoms in H2O molecule could be released. This review is a perspective of the recent advances in oxygenation of organic substrates with water as oxygen source. In the meanwhile, research prospect on photocatalytic hydrogen production coupled with the photocatalytic oxygenation of an organic substrate for a new water splitting system has been proposed.

Key words: artificial photosynthesis, water molecule activation, metal-oxo intermediate, oxygenation of organic substrates
