Title: Artificial inflation of apparent photocatalytic activity induced by catalyst-mass-normalization and a method to fairly compare heterojunction systems

Abstract

Normalizing photocatalytic rates by catalyst mass in heterojunction systems can artificially inflate performance; we outline a method that can be used to correctly understand photocatalytic performance.
