Photocatalytic Systems for Solar Hydrogen Generation Using Naturally Occurring Electron Donors

Hometown: Rockbridge Baths, Virginia

Department: Chemistry

Advisor: William McNamara

 Artificial photosynthesis (AP) uses solar energy to split water and produce hydrogen as fuel. Systems for AP currently rely on sacrificial donors to supply electrons. My Honors Thesis will focus on replacing sacrificial donors in photocatalytic systems for solar hydrogen generation with natural water sources, reducing the cost and increasing the applicability of solar fuel cells. This research has important implications in the search for renewable and sustainable sources of energy.
