RuO_2-loaded Sr^<2+>-doped CeO_2 with d^0 Electronic Configuration as a New Photocatalyst for Overall Water Splitting
Ruthenium oxide-loaded Sr<SUP>2+</SUP>-doped CeO<SUB>2</SUB> with f<SUP>0</SUP>d<SUP>0</SUP> electronic configuration was found to have photocatalytic activity for overall water splitting into H<SUB>2</SUB> and O<SUB>2</SUB> under UV irradiation, whereas neither undoped CeO<SUB>2</SUB> nor stoichiometric compounds such as SrCeO<SUB>3</SUB> and Sr<SUB>2</SUB>CeO<SUB>4</SUB> was photocatalytically active.
