abstract
Developing renewable energy conversion and storage systems, such as water splitting for hydrogen production and CO2 reduction for hydrocarbon generation, as well as using fuel cells for chemical fuel-to-electricity conversion, are essential technologies for addressing the current global energy crisis and environmental issues. The development of controllable synthesis techniques is critical to realizing heterogeneous catalysts with high density of surface active sites for efficient solar fuel generation.
