Photocatalytic water splitting has been proposed as a promising way of generating carbon-neutral fuels from sunlight and water. In one approach, water decomposition is enabled by the use of functionalized nano-particulate photocatalyst composites. The atomic structures of the photocatalysts dictate their electronic and photonic structures, which are controlled by synthesis methods and may alter under reaction conditions.
