  author={Jeffrey C.S. Wu and Jiun-Jen Chen and Pin Chieh Wu and Din Ping Tsai},
In recent years, special attention has been paid to using solar energy to facilitate the photocatalytic production of hydrogen from water (photolysis of water), spurred by issues regarding the global environment and energy security. In fact, since the discovery of the Honda-Fujishima effect,1 in which a TiO2 (titanium oxide) semiconductor electrode splits water, the phenomenon has garnered constant study. One of the major limitations of the photoreaction is that activity is observed to be low… CONTINUE READING
