  author={Alexandra H E Machado and Antonio Otavio T Patrocinio and Michele Franca and L. M. Santos and Katia Regina Assunç{\~a}o Borges and Leonardo Ferreira de Paula},
The interest on application of metal oxides semiconductors in photocatalysis and in photoelectrochemical devices has constantly increased. The different fields in which metal oxide-based semiconductors are applied include environmental remediation, photovoltaics, self-cleaning surfaces and hydrogen production. In the present review, the recent advances on synthesis and characterization of metal oxides semiconductors are discussed, aiming the application in photocatalytic systems. Due to the… CONTINUE READING
