Solar energy is one of the most promising renewable energies. Photocatalytic solar hydrogen production provides a technologically simple and green way for hydrogen production, which is considered as the energy of the future. To be scalable, however, this approach requires more efficient photocatalysts. Photocatalysts at the nanoscale have extraordinary properties, resulting in orders of magnitude greater catalytic activities compared to bulk materials. The formation of heterojunction has also been demonstrated to be an effective strategy to enhance photocatalytic activities. This thesis will focus on the design and synthesis of efficient nano-photocatalysts for hydrogen production.
