Abstract

Efficient water oxidation catalysts are important for the development of photo-electrochemical cells that use sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. One of the key aspects of catalyst design is to develop a molecular-level understanding of how catalysts work to inform the design of new materials having improved catalytic properties and long-term stability. The development of techniques capable of probing the molecular-level structure of functioning catalysts in situ is an ongoing challenge. Herein, we summarise three important analytical strategies for probing functional water splitting catalysts; electrochemical techniques, product detection, and spectroscopic characterization.
