Direct electrochemical splitting of water is a non-polluting way of producing pure hydrogen. The introduction of a dopant on the surface of rutile TiO2 (110) modifies the binding energies of the important intermediates of the oxygen evolution reaction, OER, and then, the associated OER overpotential.
