Title : Solar fuel generation using hybrid electrodes


Hydrogen is the lightest material. The generation of hydrogen is cheap. We have demonstrated the generation of green hydrogen using hybrid electrodes through the water splitting process. The hybrid photoelectrodes made up of organic natural dye and inorganic ZnO have been fabricated and characterized using the electrochemical method. They have been used for solar photoelectrochemical energy conversion.Hybrid photoelectrodes can be used to generate solar power as well as solar fuels. This technology may lead to the generation of solar power and solar fuel (hydrogen and oxygen) for future clean energy sources and hydrogen mobility.
