Abstract [en]

The first boom of photoelectrochemistry (PEC) came with the famous 1972 paper of Fujishima and Honda, who reported the use of a titanium dioxide (TiO2) photoanode in an electrochemical cell to split water into H2 and O2. The promising results of PEC cells as solar-energy converters together with the 1973 oil crisis triggered a dramatic growth of research in this area. From an industrial point of view, the biggest success so far of the Fujishima-Honda paper was probably the development of photocatalytic TiO2 systems for environmental remediation, self-cleaning materials, and antifogging surfaces. For solar-energy conversion, the intense activities on PEC systems from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, was followed by a considerable slowing down of the progress. The second boom of PEC for solar-energy conversion occurred in the early 1990s. The very unexpected finding that a high-surface-area electrode could be used to dramatically increase the performance of dye-sensitized PEC cells caused a paradigm shift in the understanding of how an efficient solar cell can be prepared and operate. The principle of dye-sensitized solar cells has also become a part of the core chemistry and energy science teaching and research. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
