Molybdenum-doped porous bismuth vanadate (BiVO4) nanostructures were successfully synthesized on a fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) substrate by a simple electrospinning technique. These nanostructures were used as the photoanode for solar water oxidation. Post hot-pressing treatment was crucial in improving the photocurrents of electrospun BiVO4 by contributing to their adhesion on the substrate and for charge separation.
