Abstract

p-Type Co(3)O(4) nanostructured films are synthesized by a plasma-assisted process and tested in the photocatalytic production of H(2) from water/ethanol solutions under both near-UV and solar irradiation. It is demonstrated that the introduction of fluorine into p-type Co(3)O(4) results in a remarkable performance improvement with respect to the corresponding undoped oxide, highlighting F-doped Co(3)O(4) films as highly promising systems for hydrogen generation. Notably, the obtained yields were among the best ever reported for similar semiconductor-based photocatalytic processes.
