Co3O4 quantum dots: reverse micelle synthesis and visible-light-driven photocatalytic overall water splitting

Abstract: 

Co3O4 quantum dots were synthesized by a facile reverse micelle method for the first time, and were capable of splitting pure water into O-2 and H-2 stoichiometrically under visible-light irradiation (lambda > 420 nm) without any cocatalyst.
