Photochemical Water Splitting: Materials and Applications

Neelu Chouhan, Ru-Shi Liu, Jiujun Zhang
January 25, 2017

Cleavage of water to its constituents (i.e., hydrogen and oxygen) for production of hydrogen energy at an industrial scale is one of the "holy grails" of materials science. That can be done by utilizing the renewable energy resource i.e. sunlight and photocatalytic material. The sunlight and water...
