Abstract

(Figure Presented) On the sunny side: A new photocatalyst effects hydrogen evolution from an aqueous solution containing S2- and SO 3 2- ions. The photocatalyst is a Ru-loaded solid solution of ZnS-CuInS2-AgInS2 and works in visible light, e.g. under simulated solar irradiation (λ ≥ 420 nm; see picture: CB conducting band, VB valence band).
