Abstract

Rate constants for recombination and hole transfer during oxygen evolution at illuminated alpha-Fe(2)O(3) electrodes were measured by intensity-modulated photocurrent spectroscopy and found to be remarkably low. Treatment of the electrode with a Co(II) solution suppressed surface recombination but did not catalyse hole transfer. Intermediates in the reaction were detected spectroscopically.
