Scholarcy highlights

  • We demonstrate polypyrrole decorated micro-porous laboratory filter paper as photoanode for efficient and stable water splitting
  • The incident photon-to-current efficiency and applied bias photon-to-current efficiency was measured to be 43.19% and ~1%, respectively. The robustness of these flexible PFP-PAs was visualized by the provided stability for more than ~160 min in alkaline conditions
  • The current study provides a proof-of-concept for the realization of a cost-effective, flexible, and efficient paper-based artificial catalyst for solar-driven water splitting
