Abstract

The application of photoelectrochemical systems based on photoactive semiconducting electrodes to the problem of solar energy conversion and chemical synthesis is discussed. Three types of cells are described: electrochemical photovoltaic cells (wherein optical energy is converted into electrical energy); and photocatalytic cells (wherein optical energy provides the activation energy for exoergic chemical reactions).
