Efficient visible light-induced photoelectrochemical oxidation of water was achieved using a tungsten(IV) oxide (WO 3 ) film composed of perpendicularly oriented plate-like crystallites, a flake-wall film, prepared on a transparent conductive substrate by controlling anisotropic crystal growth of tungsten oxide hydrate (WO 3 •H 2 O) followed by calcination.
