A BiVO4-reduced graphene oxide (RGO) composite in conjugation with the cubic molecular complex Co4O4(O2CMe)(4)(py)(4) (py = pyridine) has been found to be highly efficient towards visible light-driven water oxidation. A 4-fold enhancement in the average oxygen evolution rate and 100% yield based on the consumption of the sacrificial electron acceptor were obtained upon the addition of molecular cocatalysts to BiVO4-RGO in pure water.
