Abstract

Employing an oxidative photodeposition of CrOx the well-known Rh/CrOx co-catalyst system was prepared on different semiconductors. These photocatalysts showed up to 25% higher overall water splitting activities compared with conventionally prepared materials. The enhancement is attributed to a favorable selective deposition of CrOx caused by charge-directed deposition.
