Photo-electrochemical water splitting

Water splitting consists on the H2O molecule division in H+ and combination with photo-generated electrons on the cathode and separation of O2 on the anode due to the combination of H2O and the photo-generated holes. This reaction occurs at an over potential of 1.23 V (vs Normal Hydrogen Electrode).
