Title: Theoretical evaluation of the surface electrochemistry of perovskites with promising photon absorption properties for solar water splitting

Abstract

Density functional theory results describing the theoretical electrocatalytic properties of perovskite oxides and oxynitrides suggest that the water splitting reaction will require cocatalysts due to high theoretical oxygen evolution and hydrogen evolution overpotentials.
