We recently described the use of Ti(0) microfibers as an anodization substrate for the preparation of TiO2 nanotubes arrays as porous photoanodes. Here, we report the use of these fibers as a scaffold to build porous photoanodes based on a WO3/BiVO4 heterojunction. The obtained photoelectrodes show promising results under visible light irradiation for water oxidation both in a typical liquid-phase photoelectrochemical setup and in a gas phase reactor (developed in-house) based on a polymeric electrolyte membrane.
