Nickel-manganese oxides with variable Ni : Mn ratios, synthesised from heterobimetallic single-source precursors, turned out to be efficient water oxidation catalysts. They were subjected to oxidant-driven, photo- and electro-catalytic water oxidation showing superior activity and remarkable stability. In addition, a structure-activity relation could be established.
