In the present work our attention was focused on the obtaining photoelectrodes for photoelectrochemical cell that incorporate two electrodes, one of which has been titania (TiO 2 ) coated on a transparent conducting oxide (TCO), referred to as the primary electrode and the other, the counter electrode, a non-corrosive metal such as a thin layer of platinum. A thin layer of a nanoporous TiO 2 semiconductor was deposited onto a sheet of ITO conducting glass (sheet resistance ~ 30 Ωcm -2 ).

Several complementary investigation techniques like BET, SEM and XRD were used to follow the influence of the reactants molar ratio and thermal treatment on the TiO 2 photoanode. The nanocrystalline TiO 2 /ITO conducting glass electrode seems to be a promising photoanode in a photoelectrochemical cell for hydrogen generation by water splitting.
