It′s all in the preparation: The preparation of the photocatalysts and the cocatalysts for overall water splitting using powder inorganic materials is listed and discussed. Based on the principle and the requirements for overall water splitting, the preparation techniques that have been commonly used in the literature are listed to present an overview of each method.
