The photocatalytic activity of two semiconductors can tap visible light to “split water and produce hydrogen,” reveals study

(Natural News) Chinese researchers recently uncovered a very efficient arrangement of two common semiconductor materials that would greatly increase their efficiency as photocatalysts. They reported that a two-dimensional heterostructure made up of nanometer-thin layers of black phosphorus and bismuth tungstate could split water in the presence of sufficient light. Furthermore, the same semiconductor structure could…
