Abstract

Photocatalytic splitting of seawater with oxalic acid as sacrificial reagents on CuO/TNT and nanosize TiO2 have been studied. A better H2 yield (1.26 μmol/g cat.) from photocatalytic splitting of seawater on CuO/TNT is obtained. An economic consideration for electrical power generation with a H2-internal combustor fueled with H2 yielded from photocatalytic splitting of seawater has also been studied. The years of return for the small scale solar-derived power generation system are 3.5.
