Researchers from Kobe University’s Molecular Photoscience Research Center in Japan have succeeded in developing a strategy that greatly increases the amount of hydrogen produced from sunlight and water using hematite photocatalysts.
Hydrogen has received attention as a possible next generation energy solution, and it can be produced from sunlight and water using photocatalysts.
In order to make this practicable, it is necessary to develop foundation technologies to optimise the potential of the photocatalysts, in addition to finding new materials for catalysts.
This time, the research group led by Associate Professor Tachikawa Takashi successfully produced a photoanode with an extremely high conductivity.
