Abstract

A BiVO4–reduced graphene oxide (RGO) composite in conjugation with the cubic molecular complex Co4O4(O2CMe)4(py)4 (py = pyridine) has been found to be highly efficient towards visible light-driven water oxidation. A 4-fold enhancement in the average oxygen evolution rate and 100% yield based on the consumption of the sacrificial electron acceptor were obtained upon the addition of molecular cocatalysts to BiVO4–RGO in pure water.
