Abstract

The incessant search for a clean, inexpensive and renewable energy has been performed by numerous research groups. Semiconductors as TiO2 and ZnS have been extensively studied how they can be applied in this field. These semiconductors can be applied in water splitting process in order to obtain hydrogen as product that can be used as fuel. The technological advances in computational allowed the improvement in different research fields such as theoretical chemistry. This one is able to enhance, induce and predict new material properties with potential technological applications. The objective of this theoretical and experimental project is synthesize a TiO2 electrode and also realize a ZnS deposition in its surface on the purpose to evaluate their use in the water splitting process. Furthermore, it will be applied the theoretical chemistry to provide a better understanding of the physical, chemical and structural properties of these semiconductors. All the results will be compared with the literature.
