Enhanced photocatalytic water oxidation on ZnO photoanodes in a borate buffer electrolyte

Author affiliations

Abstract

Water oxidation performance of ZnO photoanodes was improved with a negative shift of ∼0.2 V in potential by a simple in situ photoelectrochemical reaction in borate buffer solution (BBS) or immersion at 75 °C in concentrated BBS. Electrochemical study of FTO electrodes shows an overpotential reduction effect of BBS treatment.
