Researchers from National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences Describe Findings in Chlorophyll (Photochemical water splitting of WO3 nanoparticles layers on indium tin oxide glass substance after absorbing chlorophyll)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Data detailed on Biological Factors have been presented. According to news originating from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "N-type semiconductor tungsten oxide is an interesting photocatalytic material because it has a good band gap (2.6 eV)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, "This experiment using the surfactants citric acid and tannic acid acts on an aqueous solution of tungsten oxide, helps in the formation of different crystal growth surfaces and thus achieves a mixed solution of tungsten oxide to obtain a different optical, surface morphology and its two kinds of citric acid and tannic acid mixed ratios of the tungsten oxide specimen test the efficiency of solar hydrogen production. The efficiency test results in maximum efficiency, reaching 0.85% WO3 (citric acid: tannic acid = 1: 3) of the solar hydrogen production efficiency."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The efficiency will possibly be up to 3% after optimization."
