In recent years, photoelectrochemistry has attracted more and more attention as an efficient method of organic synthesis. A combination of the amazing performance of photochemical catalysis and the anti-thermodynamic properties of electrochemical catalysis has greatly simplified several organic syntheses. In this paper, we introduce typical photoelectrochemical reactions, summarize several catalysts widely applied in photoelectrochemistry, and propose a perspective for further applications of photoelectrochemistry.
