|Title of the Research||Highly activated single-layer nanosheet dye-sensitized photocatalyst for overall water splitting|
|Outline of Research||Overall water splitting using a photocatalyst and solar energy has attracted significant attention as a next-generation energy medium, but the current light-hydrogen conversion efficiency is about 1%.
Therefore, I will focus on nanosheet structures which can be improved the surface area, photon absorption efficiency, and dye loading amount.
In this research, I will develop an exfoliation reagent that has a dye-sensitizing ability, and a hybrid photocatalyst with a nanosheet type photocatalyst system that can respond to near infrared region.
