Abstract

Effectiveness of reduced graphene oxide as a solid electron mediator for water splitting in the Z-scheme photocatalysis system was demonstrated. We have shown that a tailor-made, photoreduced graphene oxide can shuttle photogenerated electrons from an O2-evolving photocatalyst (BiVO4) to a H2-evolving photocatalyst (Ru/SrTiO3:Rh), tripling the electron-hole pairs consumption in the water splitting reaction under visible light irradiation.
