Abstract

Artificial Photosynthesis (AP) focuses on finding a way to harness solar energy to generate a chemical fuel. TiO2 semiconductors are of interest to AP research due to its relatively low cost and widespread use as an efficient charge-separating support. This research focuses on the development of a device for photocatalytic hydrogen generation. Our approach utilizes the immobilization of iron polypyridyl catalysts and ruthenium chromophores on TiO2 through stable phosphonic acid anchoring groups.
