Abstract

Photocatalytic water splitting using semiconductor materials has attracted considerable interest due to its potential for clean production of H2 from water through the conversion of abundant solar energy into chemical energy. This article briefly analyzed the trend and progress in the research and development of visible-light-responsive photocatalysts for water splitting in the past few years. Particularly, metal sulfides and composite photocatalysts were discussed. This brief review article aims at facilitating a search of stable and efficient photocatalysts for water splitting, and revealing fundamental insight into the development of novel visible light-adsorbing photocatalysts.
