Title: Modification of BiVO4/WO3 composite photoelectrodes with Al2O3 via chemical vapor deposition for highly efficient oxidative H2O2 production from H2O

Abstract

Efficient H2O2 production on both the Al2O3/BiVO4/WO3 photoanode and carbon cathode loaded with a biomass-derived cathode without external bias was demonstrated.
