    This book provides the complete state-of-art of hydrogen production by water splitting including materials used, methods, and instrumentation. It discusses hydrogen production methods with a focus on water splitting (laboratory/industrial scales) followed by its storage, and perspectives. It describes all the methods of hydrogen production i.e. water electrolysis, steam electrolysis, steam reforming, membrane electrolysis, and water splitting. The effects of various radiations (UV, Visible, gamma, X-ray, IR) on hydrogen production are also included.


    • Presents a complete collection of hydrogen generation and discusses the water spitting process in detail.
    • Explores the effects of the radiation of hydrogen generation.
    • Discusses the hydrogen generation and storage at large scale.
    • Presents a future perspective of hydrogen of the hydrogen as fuel.
    • Includes future challenges and perspectives to produce hydrogen economically at large scale.

    This book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in materials and chemical engineering, chemistry, and materials science.
