The Potential of Supported Cu2O and CuO Nanosystems in Photocatalytic H2 Production



Hy wire: Supported Cu2O nanosystems and CuO nanowires obtained by chemical vapor deposition were used in the photocatalytic splitting of methanol/water solutions to produce hydrogen. The results obtained with these systems open appealing perspectives for the clean conversion of sunlight into storable chemical energy.
