Two intermediates were discovered in the conversion of water to hydrogen (top: scanning tunneling microscope images). Forming these intermediates begins with oxygen (aqua). It snuggles in between the raised oxygen rows (blue), pulling a nearby hydrogen (yellow) on top of it. Later, this intermediate can split apart, creating oxygen and hydrogen (aqua and yellow) bound together and bound to a titanium atom (red).
