What is it about?

Firstly, the principle of photocatalytic water decomposition to produce hydrogen and the main preparation methods of α-Fe2O3 photoanode are described. Secondly, the modification of α-Fe2O3 photoanodes by morphology control, element doping, heterojunction construction, surface modification and thermal excitation assisted effect in recent years is introduced. The photoelectrochemical properties of α-Fe2O3 photoanodes are enhanced by improving the photocurrent density and the migration rate of photogenerated carriers

Why is it important?

α-Fe2O3 is widely used in photocatalytic water decomposition to produce hydrogen, but because of some shortcomings, it must be modified. This paper introduces its preparation method and modification method, gives readers more analysis and introduction, and facilitates readers to understand more quickly.


It is a great pleasure to write this article. It allowed me to summarize by reading a lot of literature and finally present this review.
