Photoinduced biohydrogen production systems, coupling saccharaides biomass such as sucrose, maltose, cellobiose, cellulose, or saccharides mixture hydrolysis by enzymes and glucose dehydrogenase (GDH), and hydrogen production with platinum colloid as a catalyst using the visible light-induced photosensitization of Mg chlorophyll-a (Mg Chl-a) from higher green plant or artificial chlorophyll analog, zinc porphyrin, are introduced.
Keywords: biohydrogen; biomass; enzymatic hydrolysis; photoenergy; photosynthesis; saccharide biohydrogen; biomass; enzymatic hydrolysis; photoenergy; photosynthesis; saccharide
