A perspective for photocatalytic materials chemistry in China

Photocatalytic chemistry has received much attention as a potential solution to the worldwide energy shortage as well as for environmental protection. This article reviews the most recent progresses on photocatalytic research in China, including its specific applications in water splitting for hydrogen generation and photodegradation of pollutants. The review shows a survey of efforts to explore suitable materials (most in nanosized) and to optimize their energy band configurations for designing and fabrication of advanced photocatalysts.
