Summary

The effects of metal ion doping to and the removal and exchange of constituent metal ions in transition, typical, and lanthanide metal oxides and nitrides on their photocatalytic performance for overall water splitting are reviewed. The mixing of different core metal ions is shown to be an effective approach to the activation of the photocatalysts.
