Oxidative decomposition of toxic pollutants (such as acetaldehyde and isopropyl alcohol), decomposition of water, and photocurrent generation can all be achieved with visible light. Nano-islands of p-type CaFe2O4 interfacing with bulk n-type PbBi2Nb1.9W0.1O9 (shown) form photocatalytic nanodiodes that demonstrate high stability and high activity for such applications.
