The last decade has seen significant progresses in the application of combinatorial approaches and high throughput screening in photocatalyst discovery. This paper aims at providing a comprehensive review on the parallel synthesis and high throughput characterization of photocatalysts, including the development of instrumentation, strategy of experiment, preparation of libraries, high throughput screening technique and data analysis. The review ends with a summary of the remaining challenges and prospects on combinatorial photocatalyst discovery.

Keywords: Photocatalyst, combinatorial synthesis, high throughput screening, Parallel Synthesis, photons, electrons, irradiation, combinatorial chemistry, Thin Films, Chemical vapor deposition, sol-gel synthesis, chemical process, mechanical vibration, photoelectrolysis, fluorescence intensity, visible light, Atomic force microscope, UV light
