    • Abstract


      The cadmium chalcogenides which are used as photoelectrodes in photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells can be stabilized by platinization as well as by use of appropriate electrolytes. The photocorrosion studies undertaken reveal that the order of stability of the photoanodes is, CdS<CdS0·62Se0·38<Pt/CdS0·62Se0·38 and the order of the stabilizing nature of the aquous halide solutions is, KCl<KBr<KI.
