Rao, Pratap M.
The goal of this project was to develop visible-light activated photoelectrodes using metal oxides to decontaminate water. Some metal oxides used in the production of these photoelectrodes are unstable, so a secondary goal to establish protective outer coatings to be used in tandem with the metal oxides arose. WO3 and BiVO4 were identified as efficient and effective metal oxides to be used in the development of photoelectrodes, as well as NiO and CoO in the use of the protective coatings.
