Catalysis of multiple-electron transfer fuel-forming redox reactions at illuminated semiconductor-liquid electrolyte interfaces is important in achieving efficient optical energy conversion. The characterization of redox polymer-noble metal combinations as catalysts for the reduction of H2O and aqueous CO2 is described in this article. Emphasis is on the demonstration of rational synthetic methods applied to interfaces and the correlation of surface structure and function.
