    • Oxidation of the reduced substrate with (air)oxygen
    • Reaction cycles to simulate the photosynthesis respiration cycle
    • Conversion and storage of light energy
    • Photoelectrochemical "solar batteries"

    PHOTO-CAT also comes with

    • Worksheets for lower and upper secondary education, didactic notes (contexts, basic concepts, skills and curricular integration) and hazard assessments
