Charge! In the field of photocatalysis, metal-semiconductor heterostructures receive much attention due to efficient charge separation. However, how the charge separation occurs is still an open question. Herein, the mechanisms of photocatalysis by Ag/ZnO, with Ohmic contact, and Pt/ZnO, with Schottky contact, are compared. The charge separation process is found to be strongly influenced by the direction of built-in electric fields within the semiconductor.
