© 2015 The Royal Society of Chemistry.We prepared Ag-Si microflowers as the photocathode for water splitting through a facile chemical method. The photocurrent and the hydrogen evolution rate of partially Ag particle decorated-Si microwires were enhanced through the synergistic effects of Ag co-catalytic and plasmonic assistance.
