Oxygen vacancies activating surface reactivity to favor charge separation and transfer in nanoporous BiVO4 photoanodes
The sluggish catalytic reactivity on the surface of most semiconductors is a common obstacle in developing photo-electrochemical (PEC) electrodes. Loading cocatalysts becomes a plausible scenario but remains challenging in the integration with semiconductors due to the complicated interfacial issues. This work introduces an feasible strategy of activating surface reactivity, alternative to cocatalysis, in cooperating with semiconductor photoactivity to boost PEC performance. We apply an ionized...[Show more]
