The spinel-type oxynitride of zinc and titanium (Zn<I><SUB>x</SUB></I>TiO<I><SUB>y</SUB></I>N<I><SUB>z</SUB></I>) reduces H<SUP>+</SUP> to H<SUB>2</SUB> and oxidizes H<SUB>2</SUB>O to O<SUB>2</SUB> in the presence of a sacrificial electron donor and acceptor under visible light irradiation (λ > 420 nm). Zn<I><SUB>x</SUB></I>TiO<I><SUB>y</SUB></I>N<I><SUB>z</SUB></I> is a d<SUP>0</SUP>–d<SUP>10</SUP> complex oxynitride photocatalyst that has the potential to be active for water splitting under visible light.
