Fall ACS Update: photocatalysis

There’s been lots of talks this week at the ACS about photocatalysis and water-splitting, across many different divisions and symposia – it seems to be a very ‘hot’ topic right now!

One highlight for me was a talk by Ryu Abe, who discussed his work on visible-light responsive photocatalysis for solar hydrogen production. He also covered his research about PEC water-splitting, using co-catalysts to improve stability.

Read Ryu Abe’s latest research in EES:

Fabrication of efficient TaON and Ta3N5 photoanodes for water splitting under visible light irradiation
Masanobu Higashi, Kazunari Domen and Ryu Abe
