Abstract: The synthesis and reactivity of single metal atoms in low–valence state bound to just water, rather than to organic ligands or surfaces, is conceptually relevant and a major experimental challenge. Here, we show a gram–scale wet synthesis of a Pt11+ complex stabilized in a confined space by a water cluster, formed by a well–defined crystallographic first water sphere and a second coordination sphere linked to a Metal–Organic Framework (MOF) through electrostatic and H–bonding interactions. The role of the water cluster is not only isolating and stabilizing the Pt atoms, but also regulating the charge of the metal and the adsorption of reactants. This is shown for the low–temperature water–gas shift reaction (WGSR: CO + H2O → CO2 + H2), where both metal coordinated and H–bonded water molecules trigger a double water attack mechanism to CO and give CO2 with both oxygen atoms coming from water. The stabilized Pt1+ single sites in confined water clusters allow performing the WGSR at temperatures as low as 50 ºC.
