Electrochemically deposited Cu2O cubic particles on boron doped diamond substrate as efficient photocathode for solar hydrogen generation

Abstract:

Herein, we report a novel photocathode for the water splitting reaction. The electrochemical deposition of Cu2O particles on boron doped diamond (BDD) electrodes and the subsequent decoration with NiO nanoparticles by a dip coating method to act as co-catalyst for hydrogen evolution reaction is described. The morphology analysis by scanning electron microscope (SEM) revealed that Cu2O particles are cubic and decorated sporadically with NiO nanoparticles. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)...
