Semiconductor photocatalysis technology can use solar energy to photocatalyze a water splitting reaction and degrade organic pollutants to solve energy and environmental pollution problems. By anthropomorphizing semiconductor photogenerated electrons, this study investigated the charge transfer process in photocatalytic reactions from the perspective of Mr. Electron and introduced the application of photocatalytic technology in the field of hydrogen production and organic pollutant degradation.

Key words: Photocatalysis, Semiconductor, Electron
