Photoelectrocatalysis: Fundamentals and Applications presents a unique review of the topic that will be useful to both students and researchers who work in all scientific fields of photoelectrocatalysis, from pure chemistry, to materials and environmental chemistry. The book presents both the fundamental and applications of photoelectrocatalysis, such as hydrogen production from water splitting, remediation of harmful compounds and CO2 reduction. Photoelectrocatalytic reactors and light sources, along with kinetic aspects, photocatalysis, and electrocatalysts are covered, along with photoelectrocatalytic green chemistry which is a growing field of research.
