A regenerable molybdenum-containing oxidic ternary co-catalyst for efficient photocatalytic water splitting

CTCN Keyword Matches:

A novel oxidic ternary co-catalyst containing molybdenum which has been found to be highly active and stable in the overall photocatalytic splitting of water over gallium oxide. With this noble metal-free system a catalytic activity comparable to that of the well-established RhxCr2-xO3/Ga2O3 water splitting catalyst can be achieved. Furthermore its activity can be easily regenerated resulting in a long service life.


Low cost co-catalyst based on non-noble metals.
