The increase in the extent of greenhouse gases in earth’s atmosphere lies behind the global warming and climate change. The extensive use of unsustainable fossil fuels have intensified the greenhouse effect, causing global warming. Hydrogen is considered as an ideal fuel for the future. Hydrogen fuel can be produced from renewable energy sources and its life cycle is clean. Artificial photosynthesis has been considered as a promising prospect for the synthesis of renewable and sustainable fuels. Photocatalysis is expected to make a great contribution to environmental problems and renewable energy generation in the very near future. Titania based photocatalytic materials are one of the widely used materials in artificial photosynthesis research due to their unique chemical and optical properties. Photocatalytic water-splitting by using TiO2 based photocatalysts for hydrogen production offers a promising alternative for clean, low-cost and environmentally friendly production of hydrogen. ZrO2 doped TiO2 photocatalyst powders were prepared by coprecipitation and characterized in this work. The photocatalytic water splitting activities of these ZrO2 doped TiO2 photocatalyst powders in hydrogen production was investigated under UVVis light. The phase structures of the powders were significantly affected by the level of dopants and the primary particle sizes increased from about 130 nm to about 500 nm during heat treatments in the 550-700°C range. Maximum hydrogen yield of about 5000 μmol/hr gcat. was obtained with the 550°C heat treated powder doped at 0.1-0.1 mol% ZrO2-Nd2O3 level. ZrO2 doping above 10 mol% decreased the hydrogen yields of the catalysts to lower than 1000 μmol/hr gcat.
