An Efficient Visible Photocatalytic System Containing Eosin Y, Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes and CuO for H2 Evolution from Water
In this work, a visible photocatalytic system containing Eosin Y, multiwalled carbon nanotubes and CuO was prepared. The photocatalytic hydrogen evolution from water over this system was studied using triethanolamine (TEA) as a sacrificial reagent. The results indicated that it was an efficient photocatalyst with an average rate of H2 evolution of 373 mmol·h-1·g-1 during first three hours under visible irradiation.
