New Review ‒ Halide Photoredox Chemistry

March 11, 2019

Halide photoredox chemistry is of both practical and fundamental interest. Practical applications have largely focused on solar energy conversion with hydrogen gas, through HX splitting, and electrical power generation, in regenerative photoelectrochemical and photovoltaic cells. On a more fundamental level, … Read more

New Paper ‒ Light-driven Water Oxidation on a Mesoporous Double-Shell Electrode

January 4, 2019

A mesoporous atomic layer deposition (ALD) double-shell electrode, Al2O3 (insulating core)//ALD ZnO|ALD TiO2, on a fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) conducting substrate was explored for a photoanode assembly, FTO//Al2O3 (insulating core)//ALD ZnO|ALD TiO2|–chromophore–catalyst, for light-driven water oxidation. Photocurrent densities at photoanodes based on … Read more
