Combination of visible-light responsive heterogeneous and homogeneous photocatalysts for water oxidation

Abstract

Bismuth vanadate (BiVO4), which is a visible-light responsive heterogeneous photocatalyst, was combined with homogeneous ruthenium complexes to increase the overall photocatalytic reactivity for water oxidation with a one-electron oxidant, [CoIII(NH3)5Cl]2+. Photoinduced electron transfer from the excited state of ruthenium(II) complexes to [CoIII(NH3)5Cl]2+ affords ruthenium(III) complexes which can oxidize water to oxygen with BiVO4 under visible light irradiation.
