This is particularly true for generating molecular hydrogen from high energy electrons derived from solar driven water splitting. In this case the natural enzymes are the [NiFe]- and [FeFe]-hydrogenases. In this article we review our present understanding of the structure and mechanistic functioning of these enzymes and how they are providing a blue print to the design and understanding of the mechanism of a variety of synthesized catalysts for proton reduction chemistry.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/100047
